Stolen #WordPress posts

Peter Bright - PostcardWordPress Art blogs cover various topics, from art critiques and commentary to insider art world gossip, auction results, art news, personal essays, portfolios, interviews, artists’ journals, and artist biographies.

Art blogs may also serve as a forum to reach out to anybody interested in art — be it painting, sculpture, print making, creative photography, video art, conceptual art or new media. In this way, they may be visited not only for the practitioners of different forms of art, but also collectors, connoisseurs, and critics.

Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition – Grayson Perry – #Art #RA

I went to the preview of the RA summer exhibition at the weekend – it was full of the usual high and low points. Possibly the glass of Pimms was the most exciting thing…

What the critics like: You’ll find great pieces if you keep your eyes peeled, says Rachel Campbell-Johnston in The Times. This is a vast messy reflection of what is going on in artists’ studios all over Britain. In an art world dominated by meticulously curated exhibitions that instruct you what to think, “we should learn simply to love it for that”.

Really enjoyed the Grayson Perry textile wall hangings, not my thing really but garishly fun.

In 2012 Grayson Perry made documentary series ‘All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry’, about class “taste” variables, for Channel 4. Each episode showed him living among the “classes” in different towns, he explored both male and female culture in each “league” and focused on what they buy, creating a juxtaposition of ‘good taste’ and ‘bad taste’. The documentary was in three parts: “Working Class Taste,” and “Middle Class Taste,” and “Upper Class Taste.” The conclusion of the documentaries was one of ‘so what’  – bad taste could be good taste and good taste could be bad taste, it is all subjective and above criticism. He photographed the people he came into contact with and illustrated his experiences. These sketches were then developed using Photoshop to create finished image files that were then processed to create final tapestries, which were woven on a computer controlled loom in Flanders. The contents he says, were partly inspired by William Hogarth’s series of small paintings “A Rake’s Progress” depicting 18th century society at the time (1732-33).

Of the tapestries, Perry says,

The Vanity of Small Differences consists of six tapestries that tell the story of Tim Rakewell. Some of the characters, incidents and objects I have included I encountered whilst filming All in the Best Possible Taste. The tapestries tell a story of class mobility. I think nothing has such a strong influence on our aesthetic taste as the social class we grow up in.

Click on the image and we will mail you a signed postcard of an image that was exhibited in an exhibition of Peter Bright’s at West Buckland School.

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.

One of the best ways to get into search engines is to use the blogging tool WordPress. This content management system delivers a mighty bang when optimizing a website. WordPress appeared in 2003, with a few users who were looking for a way to enhance the typography of writing on the Web. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
