David Hockney: 18-screen Wolds 2011

Hockney has always explored new media, experimenting with imaging technologies like the Quantel Paintbox in the 1980s, the i-phone and i-pad drawing and painting apps (e.g. Brushes) more recently. He is also fascinated by Cubism, and has explored some of the ways in which artist’s represent the third dimension using optical tools, like mirrors, camera obscure and camera lucida. The multi-screen videos were made in the Yorkshire Wolds, the subject of many paintings, iPad drawings and video for his grand retrospective ‘A Bigger Picture’ at the Royal Academy in 2012.
