David Hockney

We explained to the children that this prolific artist made a huge variety of works using different media, as he was interested in looking at how things move and change their shapes and patterns.

In our workshop we focused on his photo collages, called ‘Joiners’, and we also showed their resemblances to cubist artworks. Indeed, both in Hockney’s work and in cubist paintings the subject – in our workshop a self-portrait – is seen from different perspectives.

The children then realised a perfect cubic, Hockney-like collage, in which many noses of the same child ended up above her several mouths which were facing the viewer, while the eyes were seen in profile.
