Mexico City, 1953. Hume's technical skills at achieving a harmonious balance of interlocking geometric forms, be it metal, wood or stone - is a bold accomplishment of great beauty and ingenuity. In Ernesto's word ''I appreciate metal and the freedom with which it allows me to expose spatial and open forms, mainly because of its acoustic qualities. Through the sound and resonance that the steel emits, I have learned about harmonic equivalents in their visual dimensions; and through time, I have created different families of forms and shapes that are all closely related to the concept of 3D structure patterns in space.'' After sculpture studies at the Academy of San Carlos and La Esmeralda, Hume received his diploma in architectural landscape from the Iberoamerican University in Mexico City. He then went on to participate in numerous collective and solo exhibitions, the most recent being in 2014 at The Museum of Modern Art of the state of Mexico. Among other awards, Hume received Honorable Mention on behalf of the INBA (Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes), Honorable Mention in the National Triennial Hall of Sculpture in 1985 and in 2007, obtained 1st Prize for his sculpture 'United For Peace' at the first International Bienal, Leon, Guanajuato. Hume's works can be found in over a dozen prestigious collections such as The Museum of Modern Art Mexico City, The Museum of Abstract Art Manuel Felguerez in Zacatecas and La Paz Museum of Anthropology in Baja California. This bronze sculpture executed in 2017 is signed and is number 5 in a series of 7 Ernesto Hume's CV gladly furnished upon request.
