By using high-gloss household enamel paints, often on aluminium panels, Hume creates images that shift from the abstract to the figurative encompassing a variety of subjects as sources. Memories as well as found materials inspire his paintings in which shiny and pop looking colours join into fluid and unexpected compositions.
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.
