Submission + - Hockney's iPad: A Painter Tries to Change the Way We See (

waderoush writes: At age 76, British painter David Hockney is still exploring new ways to capture the world as our eyes really see it. He's suspicious of photography and its constraints — 'it’s all right if you don’t mind looking at the world from the point of view of a paralyzed Cyclops, for a split second,' he has said. And yet he's an avid early adopter of newer technologies such as iPad sketching software and high-definition video, if they'll help him explode old notions about the business of reducing three dimensions to two. Hockney 'chooses to work in video and in digital media, rather than just watercolor or acrylic, because those tools are better for forcing the viewer to think about the problems of depth and point of view,' argues this review of the just-completed show 'David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition' in San Francisco.
