Just discovered this article from 2012 about Hockney’s view on art, importance of images & looking. Great interview too (video) with a mini-demo of his use of the iPad as a new medium. I’m still thinking about his exhibition last fall at the DeYoung in San Francisco!

David Hockney thinks that over his lifetime art has become “less”. He blames the art establishment (museums, galleries, art schools) for becoming over-enamoured with conceptual art: “It gave up on images a bit” the artist laments.
