David Hockney

It is imposing: a huge photomontage of the Brooklyn Bridge fish-eyeing out from a pair of loafers at the frame’s bottom to the soaring cables above. The work is so huge it leans, slanting against the wall because the ceiling is too low. In many ways this collage echoes its subject, that great span of American ingenuity—a swath of stone and steel engineering transcending its utilitarian purpose to become jingoistically monumental. Both the bridge and the collage confound attempts to fully comprehend them. One rises inexplicably from the depths of the East River to connect the disparate pieces of a metropolis. The other explodes in a flurry of images that flow or crash into each other to create a giant whole.
