David Hockney is one of British well-known artists that I have found very inspirational with one of my finals (collage). I really like his photo collage art works, (called ‘joiners’), which are a series of individual photographed details that create a complete image. Hockney’s photographic collage examines the relationship between image/reality and space/perspective. “I’m interested in all kinds of pictures, however they are made, with cameras, with paint brushes, with computers, with anything,” said Hockney. “All of them are artifice—technology alters the way you make pictures.”
