- DAVID HOCKNEY AT GALERIE LELONG- till March 2nd, 2013.
David Hockney, don’t insult my intelligence, you DO know who he is, don’t you ??, though almost blind, still ahs a strong craving for painting.
A man of his century, our iPad artist has definitely embraced new technology !Goodbye brushes, oils,watercolours,pencils, canvases?
David is having fun with his new tools, but apparently London fell for it as well as Cologne, where a large exhibit of his work is underway.
He can now ‘paint’ faster, with more ease, and produce limited edition prints on high-quality printers.

Japan, Honshu, March 11, 2011:Magnitude 9 earthquake.
The tsunami : 600 kms of coastline devastated, 21 000 victims, total destruction, nuclear accident of Fukushima.
“In November 2011 and February 2012, I was on the spot, without preconceived idea of what I was to do. I was driven primarily by the need of confronting me to a reality that escaped me and my imagination rejected. I have walked 300 kilometres of coastline, those who were the most affected. An extreme desolation reigned. The giant wave had spared nothing. I photographed these landscapes without thinking, convinced that I needed time to understand the cataclysm.”
Denis Rouvre – Tomoko Ujie
