“I just happen to be an artist who uses the iPad, I’m not an iPad artist. It’s just a medium. But I am aware of the revolutionary aspects of it, and it’s implications.” In this interview artist David Hockney explains what a medium such as the iPad means to him.
David Hockney (b. 1937) also talks about being a practical person, how painting is “an old man’s art” and about how you need three things to paint: The hand, the eye and the heart.
The conversation also poses the question: What makes a landscape interesting? Hockney talks about his interest in spaces, colors and the subtle change of the seasons. He finds it interesting to revisit the same place as it changes through the seasons, which is very different depending on where in the world you are. As you move about the landscape of the painting, you will see how it slowly changes from winter to spring.
David Hockney was interviewed by Anders Kold at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, 2011.
