This is a work called Late Spring Tunnel ,May 2006,done on oils on two canvases.
An earlier work done in 1997 called The Road to York through Sledmere.Oil on canvas.
This is from a group of paintings called Trees and Totems entitled More Felled Trees on Woldgate(2008).Again oil on canvas.
There was a whole room of pictures which he had done on his i pad and then printed.These are 4th January and 8th January 2011.Each was 67cm x 50cm.52 pictures in all.Absolutely staggering.
There was also film work by Hockney,sketch books etc.Truly amazing.Try and visit if you can.Its on until April 9th.
We combined this art visit with a trip to Cambridge(we went into London by train from Cambridge).Most of the weekend was dominated by rugby-Six nations on Saturday and rugby training Sunday morning for our 2 grandsons- but we did manage a visit to Anglesey Abbey(NT) winter garden.I have shown photos of this before but thought I would in clude this one of me and my granddaughter Ella with the gorgeous silver birches in the background.
When we were there last Prince Charles was visiting.This time we popped into the Lode Mill as it was working and Ella spotted this photo and in the background at the right hand side is my husband taking a photo!(Why he was taking a photo of the back of C I have no idea!)
That looks like a beautiful book and an amazing exhibition - it is lovely to get out and about vicariously! What a cute puppy, I am sure he will be lots of fun. SxReplyDelete
The exhibition looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
The picture of C taking the photo made me laugh, what a good spot by Ella (who looks as tall as you now)
It looks like a wonderful exhibition and you can treasure the catalogue with all those super illustrations. Glad you had a great time:)ReplyDelete
I'll bet that exhibition was stunning! I saw the tv programe about it a couple of days ago, he was really interesting to listen to when he spoke about how photography had its limits and the 'majesty of a tree' can never be captured in that way. I'd love to see it!ReplyDelete
Lucky you ... we wanted to see that exhibition, but I don't think we'll make it now. It should be shown in the North, seeing how he's from up here!ReplyDelete
That's one very cute puppy!
Happy St Davids Day! Hope youve had a lovely day too? Weather in Cardiff has been lovely this afteernoon,hubby managed the first lawn cut today!take care,love juliexReplyDelete
Wasn't the Hockney exhibition wonderful... I succumbed to the catalogue too. Lucky you visiting the beautiful Winter garden at Anglesey Abbey.ReplyDelete
