David Hockney - Video Brings Its Time to You, You Bring Your Time to Paintings and Drawings

The exhibition includes 18 portraits on canvas of Hockney's friends and associates, from fellow artists to well-known musicians such as Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars. Painted using a mixture of charcoal, crayon and acrylic on canvas, the works display Hockney's brilliant draughtsmanship and distinctive use of line and colour. In addition, five coloured ink drawings on paper feature those such as the artist's sister, Margaret Hockney, and Scarlett Clark, the granddaughter of Hockney's long-time muse, Celia Birtwell.

The exhibition also includes two multiple perspective videos: Woldgate Woods, Winter 2010 (9 screens) and Seven Yorkshire Landscapes, 2011 (18 screens). Filmed in Hockney's native Yorkshire, in these videos Hockney continues his career-long exploration of single point perspective.

The show coincides with Hockney's exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery which opens on 27 February 2020.
