This Is Not a Prize #7
This Is Not a Prize #7 has been awarded to Gary Hume (Tenderden – Kent, 1962).
The artist has been selected by the Mutina team, including its CEO Massimo Orsini and Mutina for Art’s curator Sarah Cosulich, for his experimental confrontation with the surface of the canvas and his coherent investigation into the limitations posed by painting.
Concepts such as beauty, presence and absence, joy and nostalgia emerge in Hume’s fluid forms, bidimensional in their essence yet opening deeper dimensions. In his work the subjective gaze and gesture of the artist is put into contact with the worlds of industrial production, design and minimalist practice.
