Ink wash painting developed in China during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Wang Wei is generally credited as the painter who applied color to existing ink wash paintings. The art was further developed into a more polished style during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). It was introduced to Korea shortly after China’s discovery of the ink.
Old images and ideas revisited and recycled – re-executed in print and paint. A body of work based around “Beauty and the Beast” a classic tale of love, rejection and prejudice, where the beauty is the beast and the beast is the beauty. An allegory, a symbolic representation or a metaphor for my feelings towards ART. Press cutting below about similar works. (click on image to read article)
The spirit of punk should be revitalized in this prescriptive, common script, widget, cut and paste web design world. Isn’t is about time we forgot the paste bit and cut and rip the internet into shreds and create an adrenaline fueled, chaotic explosion. I think what I’m trying to say is The Internet Has Just Got Very Boring! It is time for Anarchy in the web design world – my clients are asking me to create something different…..
Here are a few more images that accidently got solorised in the darkroom. Some of those above look like they have been created by a pinhole camera. The one below was… The pinhole camera used to take this photograph in … Continue reading →
Sometimes the only thing that hits the spot is a cup of coffee in your favorite mug. Great when you are testing the blogger app on an HTC Android phone. After Thought I downloaded the latest release of the official Blogger app for Android and according to the specs. you can: Compose a post that [...]
The Android StumbleUpon app has been updated. StumbleUpon has become one of the most useful ‘share link’ sites around. The element of randomness that is built into both the website and app, by finding pages by chance, can be the inspiration that fuels a new idea. I can’t recommend it highly enough – excellent. The [...]
Exmoor can be described as an area of hilly open moorland in West Somerset and North Devon in South West England. The land is still grazed by sheep and has a flourishing population of wild deer. Exmoor derives its name from the River Exe, whose source is about 2 miles NW of Simonsbath.
Oil paint and household paint on board
My original idea was to follow the Monet concept and paint the vista at a given time (so the light, shadows etc. are time specific) – I changed my mind and gave myself a time limit of 90 minutes to complete the six landscapes indoors.
This painting was painted around 2002 / 03 by Peter Bright
I hadn’t seen this painting for nearly 10 years – until yesterday…
Organic: Commercial oil based paints mixed with animal fat and traditional oil paints. Emulsion paints mixed with traditional acrylic/watercolour/gouache paints
Synthetic: Commercial and domestic self-adhesive vinyl tape, cut with a commercial computer based design/cutting program, using Signlab v.4.95 software package.
Prediction = the aesthetics of the system + the aesthetics of failure = Prediction
I would find it very easy not to produce any visual work. The aesthetics of painting, the total confusion that it is still in, has devalued this important medium. It is no longer acceptable to follow Duchampian traditions and say that context is a primary factor. To claim something is art is simply not good enough. Duchamp said that a painting/sculpture died after about 40 or 50 years. After that they become Art History. What will historians be saying in 40 or 50 years time? Read more…
I was using vinyl, a material I have used commercially, as my preferred medium. The “plasticness” of commercial vinyl tapes, their tactile and glossy qualities make them vibrant and alive; when juxtaposed against natural materials or organic shapes and colors they become a contradiction, a complement, more intense and more synthetic……which is similar to Frank Stella’s work during the 1980’s 4 . I carried out experiments with this vinyl material; I have cut and slashed it to destruction, to gain a better understanding of the inherent stability of this medium. I have rejected the possibilities of cutting out images and shapes by hand…..the aesthetics of the system was more important.
