Gregory Walking poster by David Hockney (Venice Family Clinic Art Walk, 1983)


Artist: David Hockney

This poster reproduces a 'joiner' (photomontage) of Gregory Walking, 1983. It's a consideration of motion and the way photography can be used to capture multiple points of perspective: a passage in and through time. 

The David Hockney foundation quotes the artist on the matter thus: "I began looking at photography from various points of view. They said perspective was built into the camera. But my experiments showed that when you put two or three photographs together, you can alter perspective.... It was an attack on perspective - it was all about the spectator's being in the picture, not outside it - an attack on the window idea, that Renaissance notion of the painting's being as if slotted into a wall, which I'd always felt implied the wall and hence separation from the world."

Approximate dimensions: 34 x 25  in; 85 x 63.7 cm
