Gary Hume
Seahorse follows a painting of the same title, which is itself based upon a photograph found in a Pirelli calendar. Hume selected an incidental part of an image of a woman cavorting in the waves, tracing the splash pattern, and found that with minor changes the image resembled a seahorse.
Technique
A single screenprint printed on 410gsm Somerset Tub-Sized Satin paper. Published in 1998.

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
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.
