David Hockney has constantly explored the artistic potential of new technologies – the Polaroid camera, the photocopier and fax machine, and more recently the Apple iPhone and iPad. Here he has captured the out-of-focus effect of a face seen from very close to, over life-size and filling the pictorial field. Hockney was appointed to the Order of Merit in 2012 and executed this iPad drawing (in a unique print) for the Order of Merit portrait series in the Royal Collection.
