Gary Hume – Archipelago

Gary Hume - Archipelago - 2020

Gary Hume - Archipelago - 2020To mark the 20th Anniversary of Whitechapel Gallery Editions, Gary Hume has created a special new limited edition print, entitled Archipelago,2020.

Archipelago, 2020 relates to a new series of paintings of the same name.  Meaning a group of islands, the title suggests a form interconnected with a wider body. Created as a Polymer Gravure print with Chine collé, the work has a delicate etherial surface, which gives it a haunting, ambiguous presence. Hume often stretches his imagery to the point of abstraction. Whilst the subject matter is not immediately clear, for Hume the image evokes a mother, an island, a nascent child.
