The Davis Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy, called 'A Bigger Picture', is breathtaking. Ever since I was introduced to his Hockney's work I've been in love with it.This exhibition is amazing to see partly because of the sheer size and ambition of the largest pictures, and partly because of the freshness and modern feel of the work.
'Technology has always contributed to art. The brush itself is a piece of technology, isn't it.'
Hockney has always been smart with technology. He used Polaroid cameras to create very organised yet fractures pictures when he lives in California. Now, in his native Yorkshire, he uses his iPad to take his work to a new level. Hockney is the first artist of not to use the iPad in his work.
Hockney manages to see patterns in everything, from the squiggles in his swimming pools in California to the geometric leaves in these iPad drawings and oil paintings. Hockney takes everyday things and makes us look at them in a new way. On leaving the exhibition you will feel as though you've just been up to lived in Yorkshire for years!
