Nude prints – #printmaking

Nude - Woodcut

This series of woodcuts is available to buy. This image was exhibited in the 150 Building at West Buckland School, North Devon. This woodcut is printed over pages of an old directory of important people from the early 20th century. Each print is unique and is hand printed (unframed) and is delivered free of charge. £30.00

 

Woodcuts —occasionally known as xylography—is a relief printing artistic technique in printmaking where an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show ‘white’ are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in ‘black’ at the original surface level. The block is cut along the grain of the wood (unlike wood engraving where the block is cut in the end-grain). The surface is covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas.

Exhibition of Prints, Drawings and Paintings by
Peter Bright
150 Building, West Buckland School

Monday 6th June – Friday 1st July 2011

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.

I have always loved the idea of Mail Art – the forerunner of the Internet!

This Sampler - Finish The Story

Review – Finish The Story – The Sampler #05

“…now their inclusion had been settled five Finish The Story tracks. ‘Playing At Life’ is even better with a mean throb, and more of his sublimely catchy, nagging guitar with Nicola’s unusually piercing vocals and a weirdly spooky synth. ‘Solace’ is more relaxed, actually far more towards the This Window style, being like ambient bellows, billowing………..and there’s an intriguing little slice called ‘Ripples In The Water’ at the end too.

Ross Bleckner’s Book – clippings of New York Times articles – ‘My Life in the New York Times’

Ross Bleckner is an American artist and the current Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations.

In 1995, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum had a major retrospective of his works from the last two decades of exhibitions at acclaimed institutions such as San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm Moderna Museet, and the Carnegie Museum of Art. Through his philanthropic efforts, Ross Bleckner has enabled many community organizations to perform their vital work. He is on the board of AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA), a non-profit community-based AIDS research and treatment education center. Bleckner is currently a Clinical Professor of Studio Art at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. In May 2009 he was awarded the title of Goodwill Ambassador by the United Nations. He was the first fine artist to receive the position. Later that year Ross Bleckner travelled to Gulu, Uganda to work with former children soldiers and abductees. Together the children and Bleckner created portraits and paintings, which were sold at a United Nations benefit and through his exhibition, Welcome to Gulu, at Lehmann Maupin Gallery. Proceeds raised were used to aid to UN’s effort to stop human trafficking in Uganda. Ross Bleckner currently lives in New York City.

Filmmakers Derek Britt and Gerald Seroy are shooting a feature length documentary about artist Ross Bleckner. To crowdfund this effort, they are utilizing Kickstarter to offer exclusive pledge rewards rarely available to the public. Pledge rewards include:

1.  A limited edition, autographed copy of Ross’s newly revised and expanded journal, My Life in the New York Times (Allworth Press, October 2012).  Ross has not had a book signing tour so this is an exclusive opportunity to be the proud owner (or gifter) of an autographed copy of his book ($60).
2.  An artist signed, limited edition print of one of Ross’s sought after hummingbird series. This is a beautiful 11”x14” pigment print on archival paper and it’s a Kickstarter exclusive ($350).
3.  An original painting by Ross Bleckner from his hummingbird series.  There is only one original painting offered. It’s an acrylic on linen, signed by the artist.

For more information, visit the filmmakers Kickstarter project click here.

About Ross Bleckner’s Book:  American artist Ross Bleckner comes this stunning and thought-provoking collection of more than one hundred collages assembled from clippings of New York Times articles which is newly revised and expanded. Chosen for its personal significance to Bleckner and for the ways in which they later affected his work, the fragments of text and image in some pieces are unadorned; in others, the artist has painted around the clippings in watercolour and then photographed them in order to create a meaningful work of art. In My Life in the New York Times these pieces—each of them accompanied by the artist’s commentary—are brought together in hardback for the first time.

“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.

George Braque was born on 13 May 1882, in Argenteuil, Val-d’Oise. He grew up in Le Havre and trained to be a house painter and decorator like his father and grandfather. However, he also studied artistic painting during evenings at the École des Beaux-Arts, in Le Havre, from about 1897 to 1899. In Paris, he apprenticed with a decorator and was awarded his certificate in 1902. The next year, he attended the Académie Humbert, also in Paris, and painted there until 1904. It was here that he met Marie Laurencin and Francis Picabia.

Methodology

Rediscovering the printing process after nearly 40 years has been an interesting process – disappointingly modern inks are not as rich in color (earthy colors are very plastic like) and modern water-based inks don’t become part of the surface, they … Continue reading ?
