Critical Review

An artist known for his love of Nature, the Hockney and Nature print series captures the longstanding link between his work and the natural world. His oeuvre is inextricably linked with the natural world, not just through subject but also in terms of his lifelong study of light and optics that pervades even his sparestportraits, his quietest interiors.

Never one to let a style define him, Hockney plays with the theme of nature to allow abstraction, fantasia and even allegory to enter his work. With works such as The Wave we are presented with an inky scene that recalls his fascination with water that we are familiar with through his pools series, at the same time nodding to masters such as Hokusai who famously depicted The Great Wave off Kanagawa as a woodblock print. Here the wave is reduced to a wash of colour, devoid of Hokusai’s detail and freed from the containment of a swimming pool, resulting in an expressive work that perhaps can be said to examine the ties between nature and our emotional states.

In works such as Tree, Hockney reduces the intricacies of nature to lines and curves, evoking an almost Futurist representation of the natural world. The tree’s branches appear to be made of curls of paper or sculpted blocks of stones, the trunk becoming stripes of colour, and yet the essential platonic form of the tree can still be felt. An Imaginary Landscape takes this a step further as Hockney presents a series of shapes on a plane, each independent mound somehow recalling natural wonders such as Mount Fuji or Monument Valley and yet these strange, almost volcanic, almost nuclear forms, remain resolutely against nature, their surfaces smooth and artificial, their extraction from any kind of context or background only serving to enhance their disconnect with nature.
