Ahhh, I do like that. Hey, I have a tiny connection to David Hockney - he held the door for me once, to the UCLA art auditorium. We were both late to a lecture/discussion with Frank Gehry and whatsisname, a guy I think of as Thor, Richard Serra, famous for his Tilted Arc and other corten steel works.
I presume he had a waiting seat by his friends on stage but I was busy sitting in back myself and didn't check that out. That would have been in the early eighties. I've long liked Hockney and had been a tad bit jealous early on, as he came up with stuff I was working on too, parallel at the time, although not as fetchingly as his work, and with differences. I've read about him all this time, admire him for a lot of reasons,
not least that he waited and held the door for me that day, when we were the only ones on the plaza. A gentleman.
