art hi­sto­rian tal­king about Hoc­k­ney de­cla­red: “Hoc­k­ney mo­st pro­ba­bly ve­ry mu­ch en­joyed using a ca­me­ra to cap­tu­re nu­me­rous images whi­ch re­call cu­bi­sm su­ch as “Still life” pain­ted by Pi­cas­so in 1912”. Hoc­k­ney’s por­trait of his mo­ther en­ti­tled:”my mo­ther in Bra­d­ford York­shi­re” da­ted May 4th 1982 is a lo­ve­ly mo­saic of ma­ny pic­tu­res ta­ken from slightly dif­fe­rent an­gles as they tra­ce the mo­ve­ment of the wo­man’s head. Ac­cor­ding to Lord Gom­bri­ch it would be fea­si­ble to con­si­der this com­bi­na­tion as a con­fu­sed mix of things, ho­we­ver the por­trait is su­re­ly evo­ca­ti­ve. Af­ter all when we ob­ser­ve a per­son our eyes are ne­ver sta­ring wi­th a fi­xed un­flin­ching ga­ze, they mo­ve about and the images whi­ch ta­ke pla­ce in our minds when we think about so­meo­ne are al­ways ma­de up of a num­ber of an­gles. But Hoc­k­ney’s opi­nion is that pho­to­gra­phy is going th­rou­gh a cri­sis brought about by the ad­vent of the di­gi­tal whi­ch he claims to de­ploy wi­th great sa­ti­sfac­tion. “eve­ry­thing is di­gi­tal now” he says. And wi­th Ipads you ha­ve eve­ry co­lour at your fin­ger tips. Art he says mu­st try to un­der­stand tech­no­lo­gy and ma­ke it its ve­ry own, and who­me­ver asks him ‘whe­re then may art be hea­ding’ he an­swers: “I don’t know exac­tly but wi­th eve­ry tech­ni­que, and at eve­ry la­ti­tu­de the­re will be art, I li­ve of art, free­dom and lo­ts of laughter”.
