David Hockney: Time and More, Space and More ...

With a show running at Richard Gray Gallery, Chicago, the legendary British artist talks painting, photography and joining the two together

in David Hockney: Time and More, Space and More ... | 18 OCT 18

‘Time and More, Space and More...’ presents Hockney’s recent video and photographic works in tandem. Making its gallery debut at the centre of the exhibition is Hockney’s multi-part video installation The Four Seasons, Woldgate Woods (2010–11), which was exhibited in 2017 at Centre Georges Pompidou and Tate Britain. The work is composed of four 9-channel video walls and arranged within the space like the cardinal directions of a compass rose. Depicting the same view down a tree-lined country road in Yorkshire, each wall distinctively captures one of the four seasons. The video installation conveys Hockney’s agility in multiplying time and perspectives – a skill he honed in the 1980s using polaroid photography. As Arthur Kolat notes in his catalogue essay, ‘Unlike the earlier photo collages which included a multitude of consecutive moments, The Four Seasons includes both consecutive time and simultaneous time.’

‘David Hockney: Time and More, Space and More...’ runs at Richard Gray Gallery’s Gray Warehouse location, Chicago, 13 September – 21 November, 2018.
