“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.” Read more…

Grayson Perry textile wall hangings

ra_summer_show_2013

Post based on a preview visit to the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition, June 8th 2013

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.

Why not get some art delivered in the post for only £1.00 ?

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!

Here is a newspaper clipping about the exhibition at West Buckland school. To see larger image click here
