Altoon Sultan blogs about David Hockney: The Arrival of Spring at Pace Gallery, New York, on view through November 1, 2014.

Sultan comments: "David Hockney is something of a magician: he can take mundane, even clichéd subject matter––a road disappearing in the distance, surrounded by trees… and turn it into a vivid and playful image. When I first walked into the rooms of prints in Hockney's show at Pace Gallery titled 'The Arrival of Spring' I nearly groaned––flowers, trees, that darn road––but the longer I looked, the more I was seduced by the Hockney's project to picture the arrival of spring in Yorkshire through iPad drawings. … [in] all the prints in the show, I see Hockney's love of his place in the world; I feel the interest and excitement he brought to his drawing, and the skill; I sense the thrill of the new medium. His vision is an ordinary one, but through it the everyday is transformed."
