Artwork description

Hume’s limited-edition prints are often derived from his large-scale paintings, which are characteristically made using household gloss paint. The artist’s subject matter ranges from studies of flora and fauna to portraits, but the resulting images are far from traditional representations. Hume’s careful placement of forms, unexpected cropping and precise choice of hue combine to produce arresting, intriguing work that hovers between abstraction and figuration. Although his paintings are often characterised by their flatness, printmaking has allowed Hume to experiment with scale, as well as traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques which provide an opportunity to create subtle texture within his works on paper.

Hume often uses birds as his subject matter, and here the unusual circular motif creaties an ambiguous viewpoint – is the bird seen through the lens of a telescope, or viewed from above, looking down at the globe? This image seems particularly poignant given the current turbulent political times.
