I LOVE: Gary Hume

The 'Young British Artist' Gary Hume has teamed up with luxury label Marni to create prints for its autumn/winter 2010 collection. Hume is renowned for paintings distinguished by a bright palette, reduced imagery and simplified forms.


Hume first received critical acclaim with a body of work known as the 'Door' paintings. These minimal and abstract works with their high gloss paint and insistent reflective surfaces, developed in the early 1990s and first noticed by Charles Saatchi, pushed british art out of its comfort zone. 


Consuelo Castiglioni, the label's founder and creative director said: "I have a book of Gary Hume and as I like his work very much I thought that it would be perfect for the spirit of the autumn/winter 2010-11 collection". She has finally used four of his designs adding a unique, artsy feel to her collection.
