Gary Hume: Painting "Hermaphrodite Polar Bear" (2005)

Hermaphrodite Polar Bear bears the silhouette of the massive creature, with four paws and a body shape that can remind both of masculine and feminine genders. The delicate pastel shades trivialize the presentation, and the picture oscillates between humor and obscenity.

Original color serigraph 2005, edition 100 copies. Motif size 60 x 46.5 cm. Sheet format 76.2 x 63.5 cm.

Gary Hume, born 1962 in Kent / United Kingdom, is one of the artists who became known worldwide as "Young British Artists" in the mid-1990s; his works are in significant art collections worldwide. The artist now lives in London.

Hume is a painter who develops his motifs between art and consumption, tragedy and comedy. His works are not made on canvas with oil paint, but on aluminum with high-gloss household paint. The result is a brilliant stream, like a sticky sweet syrup spreading a world of imagery in the field of abstraction and figuration.
