For him, drawing is not merely a matter of making lines with a tool; it’s fundamentally about constructing a two-dimensional image of three-dimensional space.
And that it’s all about using new technology to find new ways to make images:An exhilarating aspect of Hockney’s approach is that it widens art history into a unified account of pictures, images, of all kinds—handmade, photographic, cinematic, televisual. They are all part of the same story…A basic point for Hockney is that all art is based on technology. The paintbrush, as he says, is a technological device.
Really great piece. Love Hockney.
I watched Caddyshack over the weekend for the first time in a while and cracked up when Rodney Dangerfield’s character, Al, clowns on some of the gear in the pro shop - “Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?”
Hopefully you incorporate the bowl of soup diss in your every day sonning of people who dress poorly.
