Place is a particular position, point, or area in space, a location. Within the art industry, it is important to have an awareness of space, when creating, and displaying art, in order to keep focused and give the audience the best experience possible. A great example of this idea is David Hockney’s house on the west coast, which was designed by the artist himself, in a bold, bright ‘exotic colour Palate’ devised for each room, Hockney; “Everyone who comes here likes it. People don’t dare such colours usually.” The amazingly unique environment has enabled Hockney to incorporate his surroundings into his artwork, with many of his creations being abstract studies of around his home, including some more recognisable pieces featuring his outdoor swimming pool, furthermore he displays many of his pieces around his home, creating a more personal experience for those who visit his home, Hockney; “What I am doing, slowly, is making my own environment—room by room”. As well as those who view his art from studios and galleries that get an inside perspective on what his intimate homelife is like.
