David Hockney, ‘Remember that you cannot look at the sun or death for very long’, 2021

“I knew that to do anything really worthwhile at my age, I’d have to isolate myself. Then came the lockdown in March, and I didn’t mind at all because it meant there wouldn’t be any visitors, and I could get a long run on work. And I did.” - David Hockney

SUBSUN

A subsun (also spelled sub-sun) is an optical phenomenon that appears as a glowing spot visible within clouds or mist when observed from above. The subsun appears directly below the actual Sun, and is caused by sunlight reflecting off of numerous tiny ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere. As such, the effect belongs to the family of halos. The region of ice crystals acts as a large mirror, creating a virtual image of the Sun appearing below the horizon, analogous to the Sun's reflection in a body of water.
