“Painting and Photography,” a solo exhibition of new work by David Hockney developed over the past two years in his Los Angeles studio, explores the relationship between painting and photography, the artist’s interest in depicting perspective, as well as his fascination with using new technology to create images.
“The problem is the foreground and the vanishing point… Well not now. Digital photography can free us from a chemically imposed perspective that has lasted for 180 years.”
Interesting arts ideas for exploration …
