Art Edition A, No. TASCHENs SUMO-sized David Hockney. Monograph , is as spectacular in format as it is in scope. In it, the artist takes stock of more than 60 years of work, from his teenage days at the Bradford School of Art, through his breakthrough in 1960s Swinging London, life by Los Angeles pools in the 1970s, up to his recent extensive series of portraits, iPad drawings, and Yorkshire landscapes. Never before has Hockneys oeuvre been published on such an astonishing and immersive scale. As each page unfurls in a blaze of blues, pinks, greens, and oranges, we are spellbound both by the artists vibrancy as a colorist and his extraordinary sense of the conditions of the world that surrounds us. Through Hockneys restless interrogation of perception and representation, we witness the mellow sheen of light on a muddy Yorkshire puddle, the ochre enormities of. A Bigger Grand Canyon. The rustic majesty of. Bigger Trees near Warter. With the exquisite sparkle of a turquoise pool beneath an iridescent California sky. These major paintings are joined by the artists drawings, photo-composites, multi-perspective collages, stage designs, multi-camera video works, and iPad drawings , each a panoply of looking and showing in different styles and media. Hockney himself is present in every aspect of the publication. He collaborated closely through all production stages and conceived of this book as a purely visual survey of more than 450 works prefaced by a handwritten programmatic statement. As an artist who rarely looks back, the vast volume is as much his own personal review as it is a definitive record for art lovers all over the world. I dont tend to live in the past, he comments, Working on this book, I see quite how much I have done. To add to the sumptuous portfolio, the monograph also includes an illustrated chronology of 680 pages, contextualizing Hockneys art with drawings, graphic work, portrait photos, and text based on the artists own writings as well as contemporary reviews. This limited Art Edition of. Offers the most lavish presentation of Hockneys monograph, with an exclusive ink-jet print of one of Hockneys famed iPad drawings , printed under the artists supervision in his Los Angeles studio. The work shows delicate pink peonies and ferns in a glass vase and forms part of Hockneys celebrated flower series on iPad and iPhone, testimony to his ongoing experimentation with artistic tools. Theres magic in an iPad, the artist comments, Its the same magic thats in a pencil or pen or brushes. Limited Art Edition of 250 signed copies; each with iPad drawing. 2010, printed on archival paper, signed by the artist and numbered; and a Marc Newson.

According to a poll of 1,000 British painters and sculptors, Hockney is the most influential British artist of all time. David Hockney with his oil painting, Bigger Trees Near Warter. David Hockney is the most influential British artist of all time, according to a poll of 1,000 British painters and sculptors. Neither Damien Hirst nor Tracey Emin made the top 10 in a nationwide survey that is both revealing and damning for the Young British Artists. Turner Prize winners and nominees have been eclipsed by Turner himself, who was voted into second place. The YBAs are constantly showered with accolades by curators, collectors and critics, supported by an art market PR machine that ensures they are rarely out of the limelight. Yet, as this poll suggests, they fail to inspire other artists – one of the tests of great talent. Instead, contemporary artists look for inspiration in 20th-century masters such as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Stanley Spencer, as well as the 18th-century master Gainsborough. Of contemporary artists, Grayson Perry, the eccentric potter, Sir Peter Blake, the pop artist, and Banksy, the graffiti artist, have been singled out by their peers as major influences, but those conspicuous by their absence from the Top Ten, apart from Hirst and Emin, include Jake and Dinos Chapman, best-known for defacing Goya prints, Mark Wallinger, who videoed himself dressed as a bear, and Marc Quinn, who made a head out of his own blood. Nor are Antony Gormley, who made the giant Angel of the North, or Anish Kapoor, whose spiralling tower marks the London Olympics, towering figures for todays sculptors. Rubbing salt into the wound of excluded artists is the inclusion of Jack Vettriano, the self-taught painter of The Singing Butler who has long been spurned by the art establishment, dismissed as the Jeffrey Archer of the art world, perhaps because his art sells so well on greeting-cards and posters. Hearing of the polls findings, Julian Spalding, former director of the Glasgow Museums and an art writer, said: Its very refreshing that artists are using their eyes and making judgments independent of the art market. Its refreshing too that theyre mentioning artists who could actually influence somebody; because how does Damien Hirst influence anyone? Hes a dead end. When they come to do their own work, [artists] realise they cant follow [them]. You have to look at someone whos created something to be inspired. Hockneys top, I think, because not only does he make things, but he has this wonderful enthusiasm for looking and making. Hes valued for what he actually does rather than what he says he is. David Juda, a leading art dealer who represents Hockney, said of the poll: That is one of the nicest things Ive heard for a long time – not because its one of my artists. It shows that, however much PR is pushed on the public, the public still has a mind of its own. With the most incredible PR that there is on Hirst and Emin this is fascinating. Selby Whittingham, a leading Turner scholar, described the polls findings as encouraging, reflecting perhaps that the moment of the YBAs is passing. A thousand artists, between the ages of 20 and 65, applied to participate and took part in the survey. They included recent art school graduates and established artists. A hundred artists were chosen to exhibit at the fair, which runs at The Bargehouse on the South Bank, from Friday until Sunday [25-27]. One of the selectors, the artist Charming Baker (real name Alan Baker) – whose collectors include Hirst – defended the polls rejected artists: Ask the question in 10 or 15 years time and therell be a whole different set of artists. Another selector, Godfrey Worsdale, Director of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead which is hosting this years Turner Prize described the Top Ten as a pretty sound list in most respects. He dismissed the suggestion of any insult to the rejected artists: Theyre very highly regarded, cemented into art history. The White Cube Gallery, whose artists include Hirst, Emin and the Chapmans, declined to comment.
