David Hockney: Prints

Through constant experimentation, David Hockney has sought to reinvent his artistry and discover new ways of seeing. The National Gallery of Australia touring exhibition, ‘David Hockney: Prints’, currently on show at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery until 1 December highlights the depth and scope of the artist’s printmaking output in terms of style, subject matter, technique and scale. It features 80 works from the 1960s pop art era to the present day, developed using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and more recently, iPhones and iPads.

David’s brother, John Hockney will be in the gallery to discuss his soon to be released book, ‘The Hockneys: Never Worry What the Neighbours Think’ on Friday 22 November, 5-6.30pm.
