Grace and Joshua conclude their visit to the large retrospective of David Hockney’s art at Tate Britain spanning 60 years. In this second film, we look at a drawing, a collage made from photographs, a painting made in the Yorkshire wolds and a recent iPad drawing. We wrap up the film by thinking about Hockney’s achievement and enduring popularity.
The review takes place on The Art Channel on YouTube. Each week I post reviews of Modern and Contemporary Art exhibitions in discussion with Grace Adam.
Tate Modern is now showing a large range of work made by the South African and Dutch painter, Marlene Dumas. Often using a technique that disperses diluted ink and paint, her paintings are created by using found photographs rather than life models, producing images rich in mood and psychological insight.
The exhibition runs until May 10, 2015.
