An account of popular artist, David Hockney, who describes in his own words his life and work since the mid-1970s. David Hockney has worked in almost every medium - painting, drawing, stage design, photography and printmaking. He has undertaken an ambitious experiment with ways of seeing and ways of representing sight - ranging from his paintings, with their challenges to perspective and brilliant colours, to his vivid multi-dimensional photo-collages and his fax art, computer printings and coloured laser prints.

UK Kirkus Review »
Coming from one of the more articulate commentators, whether discussing his own work or that of his mentors and contemporaries, this new book from Hockney is greatly welcome. In it he talks about his life and work over the past 20 years - in many ways, taking up where David Hockney by David Hockney left off. As could be expected from his art, Hockney is constantly questioning and seeking, taking nothing for granted, and throughout the book describes in its various forms - painting, drawing, stage design, photography and printmaking - the passionate exploration that has characterized the last two decades of his art. Throughout experiments with materials he has remained dedicated to the more traditional media of painting and drawing, and the book offers an extensive selection of the works in which he has stretched the boundaries of both genres. Hockney reveals once again his creativity, his playfulness and his deeply felt philosophies, offering unparalleled insights into his life, work and thinking. (Kirkus UK)
