Sprüth Magers reopens its London gallery with an expanded exhibition space occupying three floors on Grafton Street and a debut exhibition of new works by Gary Hume.
This is Hume’s first solo exhibition in the UK since his retrospective at Tate Britain in 2013, and is also the first time that his paintings on paper will be exhibited publicly.
Gary Hume’s new body of works on paper mark a critical shift in his practice. Emerging from preparatory sketches, they revealed themselves as a unique and compelling body of work that has led the artist to develop an entirely new painting method. The use of domestic gloss paint is indicative of Hume’s practice, yet its effect on the paper ground enables a distinctive interplay between light, depth, and texture that stands in stark contrast to his characteristic aluminium paintings.
