Who said that technology and nature are incompatible had certainly never met David Hockney. English sculptor, painter, illustrator, screenwriter and photographer, he took the nature and made it the object and the muse of his art. Surprisingly, he did it in a way which is both personal and super technological.
How? Drawing on an iPad. Extremely unique, David Hockney’s approach consists in looking at technology as it was a canvas on which painting bright-colored, beautiful landscapes.
It is from this concept that “The Yosemite Suite”, was born: a series of artistic images which have been inspired by the National Park of Yosemite, drawn on a Tablet and then transposed on print.
The passion for technology together with a devotion for art have always been a fixed point, a distinctive hallmark for the artist, whom had showcased his hi-tech vision of the seasonal changes in 2014, through a series called “The Arrival of the Spring” (he did it with his unmissable iPad, of course).
Today, “The Yosemite Suite” is on display at the Pace Gallery in New York, where it will be on view until June 18.
