1. Today is the birthday of famous English painter and photographer David Hockney.  Known best for his iconic paintings like 1967’s “A Bigger Splash”, Hockney also has a penchant for creating photo collages which he calls joiners.  Using a single subject, the artist takes a series of photographs, bit by bit, from slightly varying angles, ultimately creating a composite of the full form.  The technique is used to explore the way that human beings see, and also as a representation of how to explore cubism through the medium of photography.  Enclosed is one such joiner called “Nicholas Wilder Studying Picasso” from 1982.  As a bonus fact, Hockney was born with Synesthesia, the neurological condition which allows for synesthetic visual responses from audial stimuli… That means he can see sound.  [ David Hockney Gallery ]
