Spanning two sheets of paper, Living Room And Terrace opens up like an empty stage set in front of the viewer. We are faced with an arrangement of chairs, both inside and out, and dense foliage in the background. Made with an office photocopier Hockney bought in order to work more quickly and spontaneously when making prints, the piece employs a range of textures and colours to create a vibrant scene. Here we see how the industrial machine allowed him to recreate the effect of a lithograph or screen print by building up layers of drawings, as well as textures, to create captivating contrasts between the objects and planes in the image. To the left of the work we can see a drawing of a sculpture or geometric objects on a plane. Hockney enjoyed playing with scale in these prints, photocopying a normal sized drawing and using the machine’s ‘reduce’ function to bring it down to miniature size, to then include it in a larger scene. This and the chair to the right of the table represent the stark contrast between inside and outside in Living Room And Terrace. While the furniture and objects indoors are picked out with fine lines, the decking of the terrace and the red chairs are rendered in loose brushstrokes as if to align with the organic forms behind.
