This imaginative reconstruction of David Hockney's art and love life is stunningly filmed by photographer Jack Hazan in the moods, colors, and tones of Hockney's paintings. A leader in Pop Art and the best-known British artist of his generation, Hockney achieved international success by the time he was in his mid-twenties and has since earned a reputation as a superior designer adn photographer. A Bigger Splash, which draws its title from one of Hockney's trademark paintings of a California swimming pool, follows the artist's break-up with fellow painter Peter Schlesinger. The former lovers star as themselves, as do many of the subjects of Hockney's paintings. Offering a swirling view of the 1970s London art scene--its art dealers, fashion trends, and gay bars -this semi-fictitious documentary captures the essence of the artist and the era.
