A new body of work that forms a remarkable departure for this artist. In an interview with Ulrich Loock, Hume comments that this new group of paintings and sculptures represents ‘responses to America and how we are being tanned by American policy and culture, the war and simple, complicated stuff like that. It started with the cheerleaders. The form of them is absolutely fantastic. They are athletic. They’re super-gymnasts…’ From this image of the cheerleader, Hume has created a powerful take on contemporary American culture that grips the viewer and won’t let them go.
