ARe you going to see it Rise? Thanks for the link.
Isn't Hockney a fan of both traditional and new technologies? I think that is partly what has made him successful, thoroughly investgating the past and wholeheartedly trying the modern?

Shure, I will go to the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, perhaps a bit later, because it seems to be a public run on it.
Good that you are awakened from your summer-sleep, Duddy!

Let me know what you think Rise.
Not a Summer-sleep but a serious family matter which I don't want to go into here. I miss the PMs, easier to discuss some things there.
But always good to hear from you.

Hope the family is in good constitution again.
The PMs don't come back it seems, perhaps we can use our thumbs for SMS. Facebook might be a too big culture shock for Mrs Gamble and The Jarndyces..
Even better (at least in my book, as I can't do much with Hockney's pop art ): There is an Art Spiegelman retrospective in Cologne right now as well.
In case you don't know: Art Spiegelman is the author of 'Maus', the famed comic-strip novel recounting how Spiegelman's parents survived the Shoa/Holocaust.

Sounds interesting and is in the same museum.
Wonder, that I did not read much about it, though Spiegelman got also the Unseld Prize from Suhrkamp-Verlag!?
Besides from the important theme of working with a traumatic family history in a comic , I like that classical way of drawing!

Have been in both . First Hockney, liked it much, it makes a good mood and he looks perhaps naiv, but knows much about perspektive, colours and nature.
Then Art Spiegelman's comics about Maus , The Raw-Comic and The Shadows of No Towers (9/11). With my English the political and a la MAD-comics are hard to understand, but also exist in german and there was a very good interview film with subtitles. Reminded me a bit of earlyWoody Allen way. Really worth visiting.

You culture vulture Rise! Sounds good and I know what you mena about hockney. He does seem to have a sheer delight in the world which shows itself in his work.
The only thing I have seen is this week a print exhibition with lots of black and white etchings and the like. Mainly black and white influenced by the natural world- very moody and intense.

I can never be a vulture, Duddy, I don't have the nose for that!
Black and white etchings can be impressing, and help to reduce oneself, but as you know, I am mosttime more fond of colours. In the Hockney-show, there was a big 24-pieces parted screen with a wild green meadow filmed on it. It was so directly relaxing to me, that I stayed there the longest time of all .
Think of Peter..
