‘A reasonably faithful rendering of my experience of looking.’ David Hockney

Artists who look at the world and who strive to record it; artists that create and construct their own worlds whilst taking inspiration from the real, borrowing allusions and references from real life, were the main focus of this project. It explores the scenes captured by artists in prints, drawings, films, paintings and photographs, and which are seldom literal representations, but are nonetheless accurate, relying heavily on the works of Yayoi Kusama, David Hockney and Peter Doig, as well as more otherworldly representations of the ordinary, through the art of Rozz Williams and the short films of David Lynch.
