Gary Hume creates paintings with distinctive color palettes, reduced imagery, and rich surfaces. Hume has abstracted elements from an image of a wheelchair-tennis player, combining them with foliage and a soft and subtle color palette. The large, circular form represents the wheel of the wheelchair and the black tennis ball hangs suspended in space, the tennis racquet poised to smash the ball across the net. The large circular form can also be seen as a mouth cheering from the audience. Hume has created an aspirational image celebrating summer sport in London.
