David Hockney
Quotations



"Spending too long on one picture can easily make it ponderous and overworked. When I started working fast it all started getting fresh."

"Spending too long on one picture can easily make it ponderous and overworked. When I started working fast it all started getting fresh."
 
"So 'how' we see the world greatly affects 'what' we see. No doubt, we have not always been at this level of consciousness, from what we know of history. I think now, however, spatial feelings and , therefore, depictions of space, have a great effect on us, a profound effect. It was the growing awareness of this on my part that made me begin to be a little obsessed with ways of depicting space."
 
"No matter what the illusion created, it is a flat canvas and it has to be organized into shapes."
