influential artist: DAVID HOCKNEY 1937 -

Updated: Jan 6

No only interested in his images, but his working practice too; Hockney is a very active artist and often experiments with new ways of working.


I find his paintings very calming, and very interesting in the way he uses detail. As in photography he selects small areas to be detailed and 'in focus' while simplifying the parts of the scene which have less importance. I'm a little fixated on balancing my detail levels with my own paintings, so this is really intriguing.


I have also been following Hockney's personal voyage into the realms of digital art, and during lockdown I attempted some portraits in a Hockney self-portrait project.
