A bigger Hockney
Royal Academy of Arts, which shares Burlington House with the Royal Society of Chemistry and others has on a major exhibition of landscape works by David Hockney. The exhibition features vivid paintings inspired by the East Yorkshire landscape (and the Grand Canyon, USA).
David Hockney RA: A Bigger Picture spans a 50 year period to demonstrate Hockney’s long exploration and fascination with the depiction of landscape. It’s well worth the trip if you can. The exhibition includes a display of his iPad drawings and a series of new films produced using 18 cameras, which are displayed on multiple screens and provide a visual journey through “The Tunnel”, a country lane lined by trees, as well as dancers in his studio.
Careful with that brush, Mr Reynolds!
