David Hockney is a force to be reckoned with. In the last year, the Yorkshire painter has had numerous solo shows in the UK, US and Japan, been the subject of a docu-portrait film by Randall Wright and seen the release of the second volume of a biography on him. And at 77, this prolific artist shows no signs of slowing down. In a career spanning over sixty years he’s been depicting modern life and pioneering technology in his art – from fax-machine art and polaroid mosaics in the 1980s to high-tech ipad art in the enormous Royal Academy David Hockney retrospective in 2012.
Annely Juda Fine Art London exhibition
In his latest series of photographic drawings and paintings at Annely Juda Fine Art, Hockney has turned his critical eye to the age-old conundrum of perspective. In everyday scenes with card players, exhibition goers and the artist’s studio, Hockney has removed the vanishing point. The results are dazzling and rather disorientating – as though the viewer feels like they are actually in the work. Hockney further manipulates this effect by using digital photography to create a 3D multi-perspectives.
If you think you’ve seen all there is to see of David Hockney’s work, think again.
