Back of a Snowman

Gary Hume

Abstract and figural at the same time, the snowman provides a witty commentary on the state of sculpture, Modernism, and Pop Art. Hume has described the snowman as “the perfect sculpture, viewable from all sides, immaculate from all angles.” Back of a Snowman was exhibited at London’s Royal Academy, the Irish Museum of Art, Germany’s Kunsthaus Bregenz, and New York’s Battery Park City.
