David Hockney: The Arrival of Spring, Normandy 2020

May 11, 2022 – July 29, 2022

Sakıp Sabancı Museum, Sakıp Sabancı Cad 42, Emirgan 34467 Istanbul


David Hockney’s first-ever exhibition in Turkey was first shown by the RA, then at the Bozar. Hockney, a man with no love of shadows, has been experimenting with new technologies and different methods of making art throughout his career. In the early 2000s he began to draw on an iPhone and iPad. This exhibition, a culmination of this particular technological quest, includes 116 iPad paintings executed in Normandy in 2020, during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Hockney depicts a landscape filled with fruit trees, bushes, flower beds, ponds and rivers, fields, and distant hills, capturing the annual cycle of spring from bare trees to buds, flowers, and abundant green foliage. The exhibition heralds the arrival of spring, reminding us of the miracles of the natural world and its constant renewal.
