With his multimedia treatment of the forests around his East Yorkshire home, David Hockney has almost single-handedly made landscape relevant again. For the past several years, the artist has sketched (on paper and iPad), painted, and made digital videos depicting Woldgate Woods, a body of work that harkens back to impressionist seriality, while remaining inherently contemporary.
David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition is on view through January 20, 2014.
