This autumn The Base welcomes Hollywood to West Berkshire in the form of a major photomontage of an American actress by Britain’s most famous living artist. The Hockney and Hollywood exhibition opens on Friday 22 October and features an extraordinary life sized nude photographic study of Theresa Russell by David Hockney.

The Yorkshire born artist was commissioned by his friend the Hollywood film director Nicolas Roeg to create the montage for the movie “Insignificance”, which starred his then wife, Theresa Russell, as Marilyn Monroe. Roeg, who’s best known for directing The Witches, documented Hockney at work on the piece; photographing the artist as he prepared the scene, the assistants as they applied make up and Hockney taking the posed shots. These photographs give a unique and intimate never before seen ‘behind the scenes’ look at Hockney that make up an integral part of the exhibition, as one artist observes another.
