Critical Review

40-foot-long, Autour De La Maison, Été can be seen to emulate the expansive architectural forms, such as the friezes of Greek and Roman temples. The print shows how the scale and ambition of Hockey’s projects continue to grow throughout his career. While the wide-angle view already provides the viewer with the immersive experience of the Norman landscape, the composition is complex in that it also captures the passage of time through the repetition of details across the print. A similar method was employed by Hockney in his photo collages, where similarly looking pictures of human hands and faces are placed next to one another to capture the evolution of the scene over time.

The print represents the artist’s continued need to experiment with the pictorial space and transform the conventional ways of looking at artworks. Hockney commented in this context: “What does the world really look like? I know it doesn’t look like photographs. The camera sees geometrically, and we must see psychologically. So what does it really look like? I think you have to draw it.”
