Could it be? The real Casa de Hockney?
London artist Richard Kolker uses CGI and digital manipulation to create or recreate scenes to stunning photographic accuracy. Formerly a photographer with Getty Images, Kolker produces "mundane" landscapes, still lifes, and interiors inspired by, and antithetical to, the fantasy environments and spaces found in virtual games like World of Warcraft or those idealized in Second Life.
In a Time piece, Kolker explained:
“The whole world is shifting from analog to digital, and I love thinking about this digital code that you can use to create images of places around the world without ever having to go there. I love the total freedom of it—the ability to create whatever it is in your imagination or fantasy.”
David Hockney's original iconic work, A Bigger Splash, was also cobbled together from various images in books. Thus Kolker's imaging of the "real" Hockney pool is a simulacra of a simulacra: a doubly manufactured or imagined reality made to appear real—it has certainly fooled a lot of folks on Tumblr and Pinterest!
