David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) "an utter joy" @_lightroomldn @_LightRoomLDN @CoalDropsYard @59_productions @59productions @haworthtompkins

Last Thursday morning Stuart and I finally got to the David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) show at the Lightroom in London's glitzy Lewis Cubitt Square.
It is simply quite wonderful. For 50 minutes you get to hear Hockney's inspirational story told by the man himself in a huge immersive space created by 59 Productions and Haworth Tompkins.
Surrounded by the great man's art coming to life before your eyes, there is an utter joy in seeing the beauty in the small things writ large. We get a fascinating peek into Hockney's brain; his musing on perspective, poetry, the seasons, nature, photography, opera, Los Angeles, and the male form.
Worth a trip for any art lover.
