In Association With the Past
detail from David Hockney 'Pearblossom Hwy., 11 - 18th April 1986, #2'
Currently reading David Hockney’s ‘That’s the Way I See It’, as a follow-up to & follow-on from ‘David Hockney by David Hockney’, & this very morning encountered within the reproduction the photo-collage ‘Pearblossom Highway’, featuring, as it does, a flattened aluminium (or aluminum, given the subject’s US location) can on the ground, amongst other discarded objects: why didn’t I happen upon this referential revelation during all that time I spent finding, photographically documenting, drawing & faithfully blogging all those similar ‘roadkill’ objects?
