Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Picture’ at the Royal Academy Showcases 150 Canvases
The Royal Academy of Art in London is featuring an exclusive exhibition dedicated to the spectacular landscape works of English painter-photographer, David Hockney.
The “one man show” which runs from Jan-April, 2012 is dedicated to a single genre by the artists – landscapes – and comprises the use of high-tech tools, multi cameras and low-tech media-like paintings.
According to Bloomberg, the phrase “A Bigger Picture” can be interpreted in two different ways. One is that the larger the picture, the closer the viewer feels to it.
The other implication of the phrase is that Hockney has used the medium of multiple cameras such that the viewer can see the picture from varying angles.
