Annely Juda David Hockney exhibition
Up close, these plastic pastorals have the artificial qualities of computer-generated art, but still have the same potency as any oil painting that captures the soft swinging of leaves in the breeze. The iPad works also do something strange to scale. Hockney drew these images on standard-size iPads, but four additional prints have been drastically scaled up. The speckled and pixellated details of nature in the background, matched with the flat lines of colour in the foreground are all part of Hockney's lifelong interest in the construction of perspective.
Dubious whether iPad drawings equal fine art? We recommend a visit to Annely Juda where David Hockney's vibrant colours and instinctive, confident marks will certainly change your mind.
