#12×17: March – David Hockney

Thanks to Tate, I went on a tour of David Hockney’s retrospective with the curator, Chris Stephens, who gave an interesting insight into the exhibition, which opened last month at Tate Britain. It traces Hockneys career from his early sketches in the 1960s to unseen new paintings he’d just painted late last year. For March 12×17 project I will be exploring all things Hockney and taking inspiration to create some Hockney magic myself. When Stephens asked Hockney what he hoped people would come away with from the exhibition he said: “I hope they go away and look more closely at the world as there’s so much to see.” Here’s to a month of looking at the world in all its brilliant colour.
