In 1992, before the YBA phenomenon fully exploded, Gary Hume took a drastic decision: he stopped making the paintings of mundane hospital doors that had gained him critical recognition and the patronage of Charles Saatchi. It should have been the end of the line for Hume, and perhaps it should have signalled a warning to his gallerist, but both survived to demonstrate that sometimes in art doing the right thing pays off.
COMING SOON: Rack ‘em up: a YBA Editions Exhibition: Hirst, Lucas, Turk, Coventry, Chapman, Landy, Wearing and More!
Rack ‘em up: British Contemporary Editions, 1990 – 2000 focusses on editions produced by the so-called YBA generation of artists. The survey, the first of its kind ever staged, brings together works by all of the leading figures of the period, including Keith Coventry, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas and Gavin Turk, and seeks to capture the irreverent and exuberant flavour of the era.
Many artists have experimented with painting and drawing machines: Jean Tinguely, Rebecca Horn, Richard Jackson and Angela Bulloch come to mind. On the other hand, Robert Rauschenberg’s ‘Erased de Kooning’ is a seminal piece of hard manual labour.
