The Royal Academy of Arts in London is currently presenting the first major exhibition in the UK to showcase David Hockney’s landscape work. The show is open until April 2012.
David Hockney’s best known work is perhaps his ‘A Bigger Splash (above). Many of us Lomographers are probably familiar with his photo collages too however, the current exhibition at the Royal Academy in London consists of vivid paintings inspired by the Yorkshire landscape. Many are large in scale and created specifically for the exhibition.
The works on display span fifty years of the artist’s career. The new body of work is placed in the context of Hockney’s extended exploration of landscape. Highlights of the exhibition include three groups of new work made since 2005 when Hockney returned to live in Bridlington. These works show an intense observation of surroundings in a variety of media.
The exhibition reveals the artist’s emotional engagement with the landscape he knew in his youth, as he examines on a daily basis the changes in the seasons and variations in light conditions.

New York City does, in fact, never sleep. Because it's always skating. The skate culture here is still very much alive and so are the people following the decks across the skate park with their wide-angle-lenses.
