Waiting for Hockney DVD


Member Price

Waiting for Hockney (DVD) narrates the offbeat and poignant story of Maryland artist Billy Pappas and the eccentric people who believe in him as they conspire in the service of one grand concept. Pappas devoted eight years and five months of his life to a single drawing of Marilyn Monroe by working on a microscopic level, he hoped to create an entirely new art form. When Billy finally completes his portrait, he believes only one person can determine whether he has succeeded: renowned contemporary artist David Hockney. 

Through Billy’s experiences with his art and with Hockney himself, the film explores the fine line between dreams and delusions, and between perseverance and obsession. A lively tribute to art, to dreams, and to life, Julie Checkoway’s Waiting for Hockney illuminates both the perils and payoffs of one man single-mindedly pursuing his dream to its ultimate conclusion.
