Critical Review

Hockney introduces multiple perspectives into the composition, inviting the viewer’s gaze to move dynamically across the image. Through his unusual arrangement of pictures, the artist creates a fragmented yet sweeping view of street life, embracing a wide range of details and activities in his vicinity. Farthest to the left, we find a view of a narrow back street, separated from the rest of the composition by a concrete building. The view of the traffic appears on the right side, featuring a line of colourful cars against industrial architecture. Overall, this is more than could be embraced if one fixed their gaze on the canal from the same spot, in which the picture was taken. The purpose of this playful composition is to invite our gaze to scan the image from side to side, up and down, in the same way landscapes are looked at when encountered for the first time.
