Deux (Second Part) is a lithograph in colours executed in 1990 in an edition of 35. Executed by the much loved British artist David Hockney.
Deux (Second Part) is the second in a series of three prints all of which present a similar composition of abstract forms in varying colour combinations. The overall colour palette of Deux (Second Part) is darker than that of Tres (End of Triple), yet the composition remains the same. However, as the colours of the intertwining planes and forms have now changed, the sense of volume and space has likewise changed. The forms comprising the composition are angular and fragmented, which is typical of Cubism: an artistic style that was no doubt of inspiration to Hockney when composing this series. Reducing his subject matter to interlocking planes and geometric shapes, to a non-representational degree of abstraction, Hockney’s Deux (Second Part) is reminiscent of Georges Braques cubist works of towns and villages in France during the early 20th century. Additionally, Deux (Second Part) and its corresponding series, confirms Hockney’s limitless scope for experimentation and creativity, which spans his whole career and artistic output.
