The Tate presents a survey of the one time Young British Artist's works on canvas. Making his name through his involvement in Damien Hirst's landmark 'Freeze' show in 1988, Hume has gone on to explore ideas of beauty through a dark lense. More than 20 pieces have been brought together for this show, including a new Tate acquisition, 'Red Barn Door'.

Gary Hume’s paintings are big, bold and beautiful. At first glance, they almost fall into the ‘I could have done that’ category. But on closer look, the incredible three-dimensional quality of his work becomes apparent. I came away wondering ‘how did he do that?’. Tickets are up to a whopping £14.50, but this includes entry to the equally good Patrick Caulfield show across the hall. Good for: modernists, lovers of colour For more from me, check out | @CuratedLondon
