The most interesting thing about this new window by David Hockney…
He said he had reworked the design for the window from an earlier painting using an iPad. Mr. Hockney has used new technology extensively throughout his career and has exhibited works created with iPhones and Polaroid cameras alongside his paintings in some of the world’s most important museums.

I’ve wrestled with the idea that art created on an iPad was somehow less valid or that it wouldn’t get the same respect as a grand old canvas.
Hockney is a trailblazer. And, as with all artists, you either like what you see in his work or you don’t. Reading about his use of technology and especially iPads and iPhones has greatly encouraged me.
