David Hockney

26 09 2013

I was going to begin by saying that Hockney’s work is dated. His collages were created well before Photoshop. It was in the age of the Instamatic. He probably used a 35mm. And you can see his techniques being used in a lot of high school art classes. His ideas have influenced a lot of collage makers. Including myself. But with Photoshop his techniques have become so easy to duplicate that anyone can do it. Almost. Except. I still like what he has done. Perhaps there is nostalgia attached to his work. And in the future that may wane. Still… they are fun to look at.
