I first saw David Hockney’s work in 1986 in London at his exhibition Moving Focus prints at the Tate. I bought a poster took it home and hung it on my bedroom wall and like all budding photographers took a photo of it.
Here is the photo complete with my own reflection
Once you discover David Hockney you never grow tired of his work and today affirmed that when I saw ‘views of hotel well’ print in the Dulwich exhibition 28 years after I first encountered it at the Tate.Today I visited the Dulwich Picture gallery to see his latest show Hockney Print Maker. The etching and lithography are superb and give insight into some of the techniques he would later go on to be famous for.The work with printer Ken Tyler being especially good.
