Gary Hume
For some years the artist has spent his summers in the United States, working in a studio he maintains in upstate New York. In 2007 Hume had a solo show at White Cube, London entitled American Tan. The exhibition combined a group of paintings on aluminium board and sculptures all inspired by an American icon – the cheerleader. The artist decided to bring together a selection of motifs from his most recent work to form a portfolio of screenprints. Hume opted for a collage process where the prints are laid down on a brushed aluminium card. The Sister Troop is a technical tour de force and Hume’s most intricate print series to date. Limited availability.
Technique
Collaged screenprint on brushed aluminium card. Printed on 410gsm Somerset Satin paper, from a portfolio of 10 screen prints titled The Sister Troop published by the Paragon Press in 2009.

Gary Hume
Gary Hume (born Kent, 1962) studied at Goldsmiths College of Art, London, 1985–88, emerging to become part of the Young British Artists group in the early 1990s. His work is characterized by a bright palette of flat colours, often using household gloss paints on polished aluminium panels with imagery drawn from popular contemporary culture in a manner recalling the Pop Art movements of the 60s and 70s. Hume refers to three main strands in his paintings as ‘flora, fauna and portraiture’.

Screenprint on brushed aluminium card
Also known as silkscreen. In its simplest form, this is a technique by which the artist blocks out a section of a fine, woven screen (formerly made of silk), which is stretched over a frame. With a squeegee, ink is pressed evenly through the screen on to a sheet of paper beneath. Only the areas of the screen not blocked out will be printed. The artist will use as many of these transparent sheets (separations) as the numbers of colours required in the print, and each sheet must be aligned very carefully with the others. The films are transferred on to the silkscreens via a light-sensitive process: only the areas which are painted by the artist will be blocked out and will not allow ink through.
