I’ve just been to the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park to see the Howard Hodgkin exhibit and I loved it. I was especially fascinated with the way he framed some of the paintings . He turned the frame so that the backside was showing and then incorporated the frame into the painting by actually making it part of the painting.
Hodgkin is one of Great Britains most famous painters of the later 20th century. "Time And Place" explores his most recent work.
In his documentary, when asked about the viewers of his work, he says "I hope that they will feel what I felt. I hope that the picture will get into them in some way. Sometimes the paintings make them smile in recognition, you can’t hope for more."
If your in the area go and see it, but if you’re notgo to the website and watch the videos.
