Gary Hume Quotes

One drawing demands to become a painting, so I start to work on that, and then the painting might demand something else. Then the painting might say, I want a companion, and the companion should be like this, so I have to find that, either by drawing it myself or locating the image.

— Gary Hume

I have to take it as a given that I have got a certain ability to do something. I can be an artist, which is take something and transform it into another thing. I can just see something, and I can see my painting.

— Gary Hume

I'm probably not going to develop to a final state as an artist. Like, become better and better, more and more refined. Become 'pure.' I don't think that's going to happen to me, because I don't really see that as something I want to explore.

— Gary Hume

People constantly describe me as a formalist or even a minimalist, but I'm not really bothered with the rules of painting or the history of painting. My approach is that everything is mine. I take what I can use from wherever, and then I forget where I've taken it from. But there is no point me making anything that looks like anyone else's.

— Gary Hume

Small paintings can be fantastic. But you can't often get a narrative out of a small painting. In any case, museums are huge places, and you want to take up some space.

— Gary Hume
