Just back from a day to London, where I saw the Hockney exhibition and dined with fellow exhibtors at The Goldsmiths Fair 30th Dinner.
The Hockney was well worth the long que. Depth of colours in his paintings far exceed the reproductions of his work. As a collection, the amount of images are fairly overwhelming. Hockney paintings, ipad prints and video installations fill every single room in the Academy, which is no mean feat for his last three years of output. The Monet like repetition of his seasonal views and the capture of his Californian stlye colouring to portray the landscape of his home, Yorkshire, is enjoyably intense.
If you plan to go - buy fast track tickets, take drinks, snacks, and sunscreen or a brolly, oh and comfy shoes ! There was a lot of waiting around. Two hours was an average !
My day finished in even more spectacular surroundings. Goldsmiths lit the Hall with candles to celebrate the 30th Anniversary year of the Goldsmiths Fair. It was stunning and quite magical.....makes a breath taking change from the workshop!
