David Hockney's enhanced reality

David Hockney was among the pop artists in the sixties but his work is so diverse that it's hard to put any label.
This post was supposed to be about his photocollages where he plays with reality enhancing it's boundaries in a very unique way that inspired many artists. I couldn't make up my mind which works to choose.
His site is a collection of his works that include drawings, paintings, photographies, graphics all part of Hockney's world.
These two paintings are very known and I want to share them with you. The left one seems to be influenced by his collages. I'll post some of them.

I have never heard of him but then, I am not much of an artsy person. I do like these paintings though. They are like a splash of color over our already colorful world.

I see detachment in these as a quest for freedom. ~Mary

This weekend I was looking through my Netflix queue and decided to finally watch "Waiting for Hockney". Check it out if you get a chance. Interesting, funny, sad. It forced me to consider what art is in a strange kind of way...

Love these paintings!
