In Gary Hume: The Wonky Wheel, the British artist further explores his unique take on the genre of history painting. With these nineteen paintings and three sculptures — all shown here for the first time — Hume unveils colorful abstractions rooted in contemporary conflict and the fragility of human life. History's progress is constant, Hume explains, but it is always wonky.
The book is illustrated with full-color photographs of the artworks, including a full-size detail of each painting and sculpture. In the essay, art historian Graham Bader traces their relationship to the mortality of painting. And in a video interview, commissioned exclusively for this e-book, Hume reflects on his creative process, on the wonky wheel of art, and on the images that trouble and inspire him.
