Seduction of Jonathan Saunders colors

If Jonathan Saunders were to have a live performance on stage as Dries Van Noten did, wouldn’t it be surreal to see David Hockney painting flowers on the wall? Hockney, working on a runway, may have to photo reference his own work on ipad. Well, the second best choice for Jonathan Saunders show would be projecting David Hockney’s picture taking into shape, the way he works on screen now, at the background.

Hockney was no stranger to fashion runway, as the documentary “ A bigger Splash” opened with young Hockney sitting in the front row at a vivid fashion show.

“No one knows what makes a picture memorable” said Hockney with an air of nonchalance. He does not mind that color seduces on an iphone or ipad screen, compared with a canvas. “Don’t you want to be seduced?”, said Hockney wittily at his Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation show. The same vibrant color was splashed all over the runway of Jonathan Saunders show. Who wouldn’t want to be seduced by the bright geometric and floral prints, dreaming that they are sitting by a sunlight-reflected swimming pool in California?
