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.

The most clearly figurative of Hume’s new series of prints for RA Editions, Yellow Slip re-interprets familiar territory of ‘bird as woman’ – and vice versa – in a sensual image portraying a silhouetted, curvaceous form against a warm background. A bright yellow jolt of colour is hiding behind (or pushing at) the silhouette, injecting this image with a characteristic element of ambiguity.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
