If you’re in the Bay Area over winter break and like colorful painting, I strongly suggest seeing David Hockney’s exhibition at the de Young Museum, which runs through Jan. 20th. In it he exhibits only work from the past decade, including paintings, drawings, video and iPad paintings/drawings which show both his process and the final result. It was inspiring to see a painter of an older generation combining traditional methods like painting and drawing with modern technology like digital cameras, videos, and computers to create a unique expression. Many of the works are grandiose in scale and color intensity and are often completed by numerous paintings hung together to create one unified image of a landscape.
