Quotes:
“Take up a radical position with Peter Bright, who is borderline anarchic in his thinking and equally bold in his art.” Andrea Charters

“I keep thinking about George Braque who learnt artificial wood graining from his time as a decorator; the story goes that he taught Picasso and these painted renderings of wood surface became a staple of cubism” John Myers

Bar_Chocolat_Bristol

I have got several of my latest prints on show at Bar Chocolat, a cafe in Bristol.

Why not meet up with friends and relax for a while with something from their classic café menu if you are in the area.

Soak up the cosy atmosphere and maybe buy a print?

Tubes of Oil Paint cost a lot

Tubes of oil paint by 35mm_photographs

I cant believe how much oil paints cost – I’m going to have to charge for my paintings by the square inch (or centimeter) from now on.


The photograph above was taken with a Pentax K1000 35mm film camera in the studio of West Buckland School in the 150 building – September 2012. Tubes of oil paint, a photo by 35mm_photographs on Flickr.

West Buckland Festival – painting exhibited called ‘Onions’

Onions

The picture above is of my painting exhibited in ‘The Gallery’ of the West Buckland Festival

I very rarely get inspired to paint these days but I saw a painting by Renoir entitled ‘Onions’ at the Royal academy last week and decided to give it a go.

My painting ‘Onions’ is nothing like the Renior but… The skin of the red onions were iridescent like the back of a beetle, shimmering and layered in colour.

Painting in collection

Visiting friends and this painting was above my bed. It is an Exmoor landscape I painted a few years ago.

Peter Bright (aka This Window)

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.

Commercial oil based paints mixed with animal fat

This painting was painted around 2002 / 03 by Peter Bright

I hadn’t seen this painting for nearly 10 years – until yesterday

Materials

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.

Notes on Painting:
  • The act of being creative is a love hate thing – The Beauty and The Beast someone fetch a priest (ref. David Bowie)
  • Action Painting – Pollock. Print dribbled paint.
  • Soft pink landscapes (1980) Richard Hamilton A landscape of soft focus and toilet paper – a turgid landscape. Collotype and Screenprint – text and image. A  remembered exhibition.
  • Duchamp: I would have wanted to work, but deep down I’m enormously lazy. I like living, breathing, better than working. I don’t think that the work I’ve done can have any social importance whatsoever in the future. Therefore if you wish, my art would be that of living: each second, each breath is a work which is inscribed nowhere, which is neither visual nor cerebral. It is a sort of constant euphoria.
  • Bright: I would have wanted to work, but deep down I’m enormously lazy. I like living, breathing, better than working. I don’t think that the work I’ve done can have any social importance whatsoever in the future. Therefore if you wish, my art would be that of living: each second, each breath is a work which is inscribed nowhere, which is neither visual nor cerebral. It is a sort of constant futility.

“Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface. The application of the medium is commonly applied with a brush. In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action. These same criteria can be used to describe printing.”
