Sprüth Magers Berlin will present Gary Hume’s second solo show in Berlin. From the 8th September, the gallery will showcase an intimate series of never-seenbefore works on paper, completed by the addition of gloss paint upon the glass of the frame.These multi-layered compositions will be shown alongside three recent paintings on aluminium. Hume is part of the group named under ‘Young British Artists’ who emerged from London’s Goldsmiths College in the late 1980s and is renowned for his large-scale paintings which use high gloss paint to create planes of industrial colour. Thematics round colour and light, formal and ambiguity, while his subject matter ranges from friends, family and celebrities, to motifs drawn from nature and childhood.
