Gary Hume, Cap, 2013. Favorite
This new work features a black shape which has almost entirely swamped out all colour. The subject itself emerges from the title, shorthand for swimming cap. Cap is characteristic of Hume's penchant for playful abstraction, his work typically hovering between figurative and abstract motifs. Here the shape of the swimming cap is offered in a combination of colour and line transforming its silhouette almost beyond recognition, framed by corners bursting with bright pink and yellow.
