The relationship between art and life and between the three-dimensional world and its reinterpretation in two dimensions has long animated the work of David Hockney, the most popular British artist of the past half-century. Marco Livingstone traces those connections from Hockney’s student work of the early 1960s through his acclaimed opera designs since the 1970s and photocollages of the 1980s to his ambitious engagement with the Yorkshire landscape initiated in 2004. Always experimenting with new mediums and ways of seeing the world, since the mid-1980s Hockney has adventurously embraced new technology, from fax drawings, ‘home-made prints’ and computer drawings to multi-screen videos and drawings created on an iPhone or iPad. This substantially updated edition of the most widely read introduction to the artist’s work, the only book to cover every phase and medium in Hockney’s remarkable career, convincingly demonstrates his always thrilling inventiveness and originality.
