An exhibition of new works by David Hockney is set to open at Pace Gallery, the New York-based leading contemporary art gallery. Something New in Painting (and Photography) [and even Printing] includes 18 new works, most of which are painted on hexagonal canvases. The paintings portray his home in the Hollywood Hills, the Grand Canyon and east Yorkshire.
Something New in Painting (and Photography) [and even Printing] will also display two large-scale, digitally-altered photographs that have been inspired by his earlier collage work made up of polaroids and multi-screen videos. The images combine multiple perspectives to offer an alternative conception of space.
Pace’s booth at Frieze New York will also be devoted to Hockney’s digital drawings in honour of the upcoming exhibition.
Hockney, who has produced some of the most recognisable art of the century, has had retrospectives of his work exhibited at numerous renowned galleries across the world including Tate Britain, the Centre Pompidou and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Something New in Painting (and Photography) [and even Printing] will be on display at Pace Gallery, 510 West 25th St, from 5 April to 12 May 2018.
