David Hockney
The Steering Wheel #3, 1982

The English painter and graphic artist David Hockney made a major contribution in the 1960s to develop a specifically British version of Pop Art. As a painter, graphic artist, draughtsman and photographer he prefers everyday motifs to which he lends a somewhat unreal and artificial quality with a two-dimensional structure and a range of bright colors. Hockney has been experimenting with cubist formal distortions and breaking pictures up in photomontages since about 1980. These include the steering wheel of a Mercedes-Benz that Hockney constructed from individual motifs: a whole set of detailed small-format shots taken from the driver’s point of view then collaged to form a new whole. The image produced in this way suggests that the driver’s view is governed by central perspective, but in fact it represents a viewpoint that is as fragmentary as it is subjective, made up of various points of view.
