Tiny Artist Box Worlds

Even in this show-and-tell all age, the world of the Artist remains seductive, magical, and often mysterious. “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” - Pablo Picasso

David Hockney

The Pool's the Place: Santa Monica 2019

This artbox was created for the "British Visions of LA" special SoHo House exhibit (curated by Kate Bryan -Head of Collections) at The Other Art Fair Los Angeles, Santa Monica 2019.

"Legend has it that Mr. Hockney came to The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel one beautiful morning in 1988 with a can of blue paint and a 6” paint brush tied to a broom handle. Over the span of about four hours working at the bottom of the empty pool, he covered it with his signature circular brush strokes. Once the pool was refilled, the art seemingly came to life when the water was disturbed, weaving and dancing under the sunny Los Angeles sky.”
