A Bigger Splash

Seeing David Hockney’s iconic ‘A Bigger Splash’ in person at his major Tate retrospective was a really lovely moment. I think because it’s been a work I’ve loved for a while before seeing it in person it had a lot of gravitas. The vividness of the blues and the clean cut graphic like composition was really striking and impressive. It really re-energised my excitement for painting after it had lagged for a bit.
