Critical Review

Untitled No. 329 depicts a bouquet of pink flowers and grasses in a small glass vase, set against a pink and lilac background. In his Digital Drawings works, Hockney renders traditional landscapes and still lifes on a new, transformed, type of canvas. Rendering subjects digitally, that are typically bound by the limits of paint, Hockney breathes new light into this genre of painting, continuing to adapt his practice and techniques as technologies simultaneously develop. First foraying into digital art twenty years ago, Hockney initially used fax machines and photocopiers. Now, the process is far simpler with just an iPad and stylus, mimicking a canvas and paintbrush. Over the past few years, Hockney’s digital artworks have gained widespread popularity, being the subject of his most recent Royal Academy retrospective solo show The Arrival of Spring (2021), which presented landscape works Hockney had created at his house in Normandy during lockdown in 2020.
