so after a yummy lunch at the Petrie Court Cafe we took in the retrospective of his life's work.
A Bigger Splash, 1967.
this painting was the exhibition cover image.

Liam was taken with this work - what he thought was a robot really spoke to his 6 year old self.
Pool and Steps, Le Nid du Duc, 1971
Savings and Loan Building, 1967
A Lawn Being Sprinkled, 1967.

Contre-Jour in the French Style-Against the day Dans Le Style-Francais, 1974.
Nichols Canyon, 1980

the piece is made up of 6 panels. Liam really enjoyed the colors.
Elderberry Blossoms, Kilham, 2008
Hawthorne Blossom near Rudston, 2008
i circled back to this installation three times.
i could have stood there for hours watching the images morph into new - as they traced his drawing process from piece to piece.
the images were amazing... and it led my son to inquire -
" could i do that on my iPad?"
i hope you will follow the link and look at more of Mr. Hockney's works.
i'm blessed to live close to NYC and be able to visit the Met anytime - I know there are museums everywhere - find one and treat yourself!
here's a list with links for some museums in New Jersey.
til next time.
