Some Fax Prints

David Hockney British

Not on view

A keen adopter of innovative technologies, Hockney has long experimented with new machines, software, and modes of picture making. In 1988 he began creating faxed drawings of subjects familiar to his practice since his school days, including portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. Adapting his drawing technique to the machine’s specificities, Hockney used opaque gray, for instance, to render halftones in the final product.
