David Hockney: Drawing from Life


Embark on an exhilarating cultural voyage as The Gallery proudly reinstates the celebrated 'David Hockney: Drawing from Life' exhibition into this season's line-up. 

Plunge into the compelling narrative crafted by Hockney's deft strokes across six extraordinary decades, revealing the intimate portraits of five distinctive sitters: his mother, the iconic Celia Birtwell, Gregory Evans, Maurice Payne, and the maestro himself. Hockney's profound connection with his subjects serves as the artistic catalyst, enabling him to seamlessly navigate a diverse array of mediums – from the timeless elegance of pencil and pen and ink to the contemporary allure of crayon, photographic collage, and the ever-innovative iPad.
