It’s not often you can view decades of works by one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century all in the one place. From Saturday 13 July, Hazelhurst is the venue to visit to view over 80 works by renowned pop artist David Hockney. All the works have been drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s extensive collection from 1961 to the present day and will visit Hazelhurst for the first time. Hockney has been making prints since 1954 and through constant experimentation and innovation has pushed the boundaries of printmaking in terms of style, subject matter, technique and scale, giving him a different point of view in his art practice. Now 81 years old and living and working in Los Angeles, Hockney continues to develop his prints using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and – most recently - iPhones and iPads for startling results in the digital world.
