Overview

Even non-art connoisseurs may recognize the name and work of painter David Hockney from his iconic paintings of Southern California, many from the Pop Art school, done in the late 1960s. In some (though certainly not all) of his work, Hockney sought to capture the essence of west coast American life with a level of purity that few have exhibited before or since. Curiously, though, Hockney was born not in the United States but in Britain. Filmed over the course of three years, this documentary witnesses Hockney returning to his native Yorkshire, England to paint that area outdoors in all four seasons and all kinds of weather. A rare opportunity to see a painter of Hockney's stature at work, it examines the creative processes and motivations of this highly unique artist.
