Environment: Research- David Hockney

Hockney isn't a tableau vivant style artist as such, but his photomontages present a scene in a very unique way. When looking at them, it is clear that each photograph makes up a portion of a whole image, but the arrangement tends to force your focus on a specific area. The noticeable clipping of some of the photographs could be considered both accidental or intentional. Did Hockney simply make a mistake, or is he deliberately masking portions of the whole picture to keep something from being seen?

Here are a few examples of Hockney's photomontages.
