David Hockney Exhibition
A Bigger Picture
|David Hockney via Yorkshire Post|
Living in London has many benefits one of which is the ease with which we can see exhibitions and visit galleries. The David Hockney exhibition at The Royal Academy is one such benefit - it is easy to get to and extremely popular at the moment - and very crowded. If you like trees then this is for you!
The exhibition is running until 9th April and the entrance cost £14.00.
Information can be found here at The Royal Academy website.
All the paintings depict the landscape around Hockney's home in Bridlington, Yorkshire and cover works done throughout his lifetime. I am not totally sure that I am a great fan of Hockney but he does seem to capture colours well. Many of the scenes are painted several times at different seasons and this makes for fascinating comparisons. The works are huge possibly as a result of his previous work on stage sets - he sees things on a large scale. Do go and see it for yourself.
