Hockney began to work with the iPhone in 2008, when he discovered various apps, such as Brushes, allowing him to produce an extraordinarily wide range of artworks. Since, he created hundreds of images, including self-portraits, landscapes, and still life, but it is with his dazzling representations of cut flowers and plants, the theme of the exhibition, that he fully explored the technical potential of the media. In 2010, he unveiled some works he created using the iPhone and iPad at the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint-Laurent in Paris; he also pointed out the possibility of using these softwares to rebroadcast the creative process, saying: “The only thing like this before was Picasso drawing on glass for a film.”
