Quote of Note | David Hockney

hockney brushes.jpg“It’s always there in my pocket, there’s no thrashing about, scrambling for the right color. One can set to work immediately, there’s this wonderful impromptu quality, this freshness, to the activity; and when it’s over, best of all, there’s no mess, no clean-up. You just turn off the machine. Or, even better, you hit Send, and your little cohort of friends around the world gets to experience a similar immediacy. There’s something, finally, very intimate about the whole process.”

David Hockney on his appreciation for his iPhone and the Brushes application, in Lawrence Weschler‘s piece on the artist in The New York Review of Books
