Homage to Hockney
This series of Peter’s work is a result of a collaboration with the Royal Academy, to produce a range of artistic glass to mark the important Hockney Exhibition at the RA in 2012. These pieces highlight Layton’s talent for translating subtle painterly qualities and bold colours in hot glass. Each one is unique and signed by Peter Layton.
‘I am delighted with the success of my new Hockney-inspired series – a collection of glass art, interpreting Hockney’s striking use of light, colour and form. The result is a collection of glass art, inspired by the exuberance of his paintings. I have known David since my early days in Bradford, and I was thrilled to have been asked to create works based on the artist’s latest exhibition.’
