David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

  1. I don’t think I like Hockney. He’s a ridiculous chain smoker who rants, and rants, and rants, about the right – effectively – to impose his noxious habit on other people by protesting against the recent ban. Said, in fact, he disagreed with it so much he was considering living elsewhere – utterly pathetic.

    His rants against photography are also tiresome. Its a different medium with different aesthetics, goals and advantages – and that is all.

    1. I don’t agree with him on smoking. I see what he’s getting at about photography, but agree with you that it is a medium with its own aesthetics and qualities. But I love Hockney for the sheer joy he has given in the last 5 decades.

  2. Thank you for that wonderful description. Tickets for the exhibition are sold out so it is great to have some idea of what it was like.
