The British Artist David Hockney

During this past holiday season, I got to enjoy some downtime. It was during this quiet, I got to catch up on many things I had been too busy to do the previous few months. This list included lots of magazine reading, as they had piled up.

In one of the magazines, they spoke about the David Hockney exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. I was instantly drawn to his paintings - the colors, the point-of-view - he offered a different vantage point.


Cue this past weekend where I made it a point to visit The Met.

Before I get to my thoughts on the exhibit, here's more about Hockney, via The Met.

"Working in a wide range of media with equal measures of wit and intelligence, Hockney has examined, probed and questioned how to capture the perceived world of movement, space and time in two dimensions. The exhibition offers a grand overview of the artist's achievements across all media, including painting, drawing, photography and video. From his early experiments with modernist abstraction and mid-career experiments with illusion and realism, to his most recent, jewel-toned landscapes, Hockney has consistently explored the nature of perception and representation with both intellectual rigor and sheer delight in the act of looking."

What I really enjoyed about this exhibit is what The Met alludes to above, his "experiments". There are similarities in his work; yet, there are enough differences where you may love a piece and find another piece is just not for you.

Overall, this is an exhibit I recommend visiting.

This Hockney retrospective is in honor of his 80th year and looks at key pieces from his body of work that date from 1960 to the present. The exhibit runs through 25 February.

Enjoy!

Let’s Try “Intuitive Eating”

Have you noticed how much dining in or out has changed in recent years? First of all: everything has to be recorded on one’s phone. Then we have to listen to a litany of: a) I’m on a diet, b) no carbohydrates, c) I’m a vegetarian, d) no salt ever, e) white sugar is a killer, f) no peanuts ever.

Ad infinitum. Ad absurdum.

The Legendary Chateau Marmont, Part II
