Note: David Hockney has created many original and printed works using a photocopier, the fax machine, TV screens and Apple and Mackintosh computers. He continues to explore the technological mediums of today and is currently experimenting with works using the iPad. In 1993 the three-dimensional looking colour laser printed photographs from this period were produced; ‘Painted Environment I’ ‘Painted Environment II’ ‘Painted Environment III’. These were mounted on archival board and signed by the artist. He also made Digital inkjet prints ‘The Studio March 16th 1995’ and ‘The Studio March 28th 1995’. The series of digital inkjet prints ‘Snails Space’ appeared in 1995; ‘First Detail. Snail Space March 25th 1995’, ‘Second Detail. Snail Space March 25th 1995’, ‘Third Detail. Snail Space March 25th 1995’, ‘Fourth Detail. Snail Space March 25th 1995’, ‘Fifth Detail. Snail Space March 25th 1995. All these works were successful experiments in different ways of reproducing imagery. The series from which our example comes was entitled “Twenty Photographs”
