Gary Hume: Front of Snowman

Exhibition Website

Oct 14 2016 - May 10 2017

Standing upwards of ten feet tall, British artist Gary Hume’s larger-than-life sculpture of a snowman, Front of Snowman, is installed outdoors on the AAM Commons throughout three seasons (fall, winter, and spring). Hume’s snowman—a recurrent and iconic subject in the artist’s work—straddles the line between representation and abstraction. In this playful, humorous exploration of form and color, the artist has rendered a temporary, ephemeral childhood shape into material permanence.
