Critical Review

Rain On The Studio Window is a closely cropped digital image, depicting rain trickling down a segment of a window pane. In the bottom right-hand corner, the top of a radiator is visible, whilst the blurry image of a roof in the distance is just perceptible amidst the drizzling rain. In his Digital Drawings, Hockney renders traditional landscapes and still lifes on a new, transformed, type of canvas. As one of the first artists to embrace this medium on emerging technology in the 1990s, Hockney reimagines subjects previously bound by physical paint. Hockney jests: “drawing was going out of style, actually, I’m amazed that the telephone can bring back drawing”. By working on technological mediums, Hockney has birthed a new artistic style that has quickly become instantly recognisable.
