David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition
Hardcover, 258 pages, $75
This exhibition catalogue, published by Prestel and the de Young Museum, was designed by Graphic Design faculty member Bob Aufuldish. It captures the grand scale and vibrant color of Hockney's work of the 21st century. In the past decade, having returned to England after years on the California coast, Hockney has focused his attention on both landscapes and portraits, all the while maintaining his fascination with digital technology. The resulting work is full of color and light, ranging in dimension from billboard-size to letter-size.
The catalogue features more than 100 full-color works of art from museum collections and Hockney's private studio, including such major new works as The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate Wood, The Bigger Message, and Bigger Yosemite. It also includes multiple-image galleries (spread over gatefolds) of some of his iPad drawings and self-portraits, plus film stills from the artist's "Cubist" movies.
