"David Hockney: Painting and Photography," opening this week at the LA Louver gallery right near Venice Beach, features acrylic paintings and photographs that play with spatial effects and vanishing points."Thirty years ago, I did a Vogue for Paris using these ideas," the 78-year-old Hockney told Reuters, "but it's only with digits [digital] that you can really take off, and I only just realized that two years ago". The 28 works in the collection were done by the artist over the past two years, since he moved back to Los Angeles.The paintings echo the photographic collages that were created using software to seamlessly blend hundreds of photos depicting people mingling and socializing in Hockney's home studio, surrounded by tables, chairs and his artworks.Hockney is one of Britain's most influential artists.Hockney said he has found himself working more than ever now, painting his Los Angeles garden and portraits.
