David Hockney photo collage entitled Mother, Los Angeles, December 1982. Collage of chromogenic prints, mounted on board. Signed by the artist, annotated #19, and dated 1982 lower right in white ink. Framed under UV plexiglass.

The New York Times interviewed Hockney about his new photographic work while staying at the Mayflower Hotel in 1982. The artist explained: “One-point perspective portrays a single, frozen moment, seen by a single, unmoving eye. But humans do not see that way. Their eyes are constantly moving, seeing in many little glances. Even when we are asleep, our eyes move.” He views each polaroid as a “glance” that could be combined to reproduce more accurately the action of looking. ”It’s a more human way of seeing,” the artist explains. ”Your body’s been given back to you, in a sense.”
