In this scene Hockney uses just three colours to evoke a sense of heat, exoticism and relaxation. We are presented with a view of a terrace or veranda upon which sits two chairs and a table. Drawn somewhat awkwardly, with a skewed sense of perspective, they become almost anthropomorphised under our gaze, taking on personalities that only add to the serenity of the setting. While many of the works from the Home Made Prints series emphasise the mechanical means with which they are produced – as with grainy sections of colour and texture or the inclusion of found objects photocopied into the background – Two Red Chairs And Table is one of the more painterly pieces in the portfolio. A range of marks is used to pick out various details of the wooden decking and the lush foliage that creeps into the scene but the artist’s hand is visible in them all. Here we see Hockney playing with the newfound freedom offered to him by this machine which reproduces images at the touch of a button. Whereas before he had to rely on an assistant to help him prepare etching plates and lithography stones, with the photocopier he simply had to draw something, scan it in, play with the colour and the scale and keep adding layers until his composite image was complete.
