Pace Gallery Palo Alto recently hosted an opening reception for “The Yosemite Suite,” an exhibition of David Hockney’s iPad drawings.
The exhibition presented a group of works Hockney made on the iPad during visits to Yosemite National Park in 2010 and 2011 and highlight the artist’s continuing engagement with the landscape, particularly that of the American West.
Always interested in the possibilities presented by new technologies, Hockney took the iPad to Yosemite and used it to draw the landscape in situ as he experienced it. The compactness of the device allowed him to work in an immediate and impromptu manner.
