DAVID HOCKNEY "THE PINES, FIRE ISLAND" 1976
Caviar20 is pleased to be offering another example of one of David Hockney's photographs from his famed 1976 portfolio.
David Hockney (b. 1937) had an interesting relationship with photography- both using it as a tool and simultaneously subverting and pushing the boundaries of the medium.
Most notably, from the 70's until the early 80's Hockney experimented and produced a wide body of photo-based work including his highly innovative photo-collages, called "Joiners".
This work, which is from the portfolio "Twenty Photographic Pictures, 1976" recalls some of Hockney's most iconic and sexiest pop paintings.
In the summer of 1975 Hockney begins to experiment with photography. That July, he spends time on Fire Island with legendary curator Henry Geldzahler. By January Hockney is almost completely focused on this new medium.
