Morgan can’t Draw Chairs: But these people can; David Hockney. Visual Arts Research- Introduction to drawing VAR11Ex1

David Hockney

I chose David Hockney as one of my studied artists as a contrast to the work of Safet Zec, among other reasons. Hockney’s use of line is much more minimalist and stripped back than Zec’s, using the simplest possible configuration of lines to create the scene or object that he is trying to depict. I also chose Hockney because chairs, although they are usually occupied feature in much of his work, and whilst most of his prominent work with chairs as the central focus is done in lithograph I have chosen a couple of examples of portraits in which the depiction of chairs demonstrates his overall approach to drawing chairs.
