Arguably Britain’s greatest living painter, David Hockney, 79, works prolifically, experimenting and mastering new technologies, creating works on iPhone, iPad and in video.

The exhibition includes Bigger Trees Near Warter, Hockney’s largest painting comprised of fifty oil on canvas panels, and the centrepiece of Hockney’s hugely popular exhibition Bigger Picture at the Royal Academy, London which he subsequently gifted to the Tate. Transforming the gallery, the three remaining walls of this space display 1:1 digital versions of the same work, the first time that this major work has been exhibited in Australia.

Hockney’s continued investigation into multi-point perspective is represented by The Jugglers, an 18-screen, twenty-two minute video that depicts the artist in a room of performers, injecting Hockney’s signature playfulness into the exhibition. Again utilising technology to reveal a study in perspective, Hockney’s Seven Yorkshire Landscapes is a 12 minute multi-viewpoint video displayed on 18 tiled, 55-inch monitors which monumentally showcases the extraordinary landscape.
