La Belle et La Bête

Morgue Gallery is now in the top 100 Art blogs in Tehnorati (2011).

La Belle et La Bête £689.41

Original painting by Peter Bright.

Media: Painting and Screen Print on canvas, signed and dated 2011.

Size: 501mm x 1603mmSupplied in the original frame.

Rediscovering the printing process after nearly 40 years has been an interesting process – disappointingly modern inks are not as rich in colour (earthy colours are very plastic like) and modern waterbased inks don’t become part of the surface, they sit on it, which is incredibly frustrating – the reason I took up printing in the first place was because of the absorbed flatness of the pigments.

Notes on Painting:

I have always been a hoarder, newspaper clippings, postcards etc. It is only now that I have decided to recycle them.

As an 11-year-old I watched the first moon landing in 1969. I was mad about everything to do with space travel, I would read anything that was about rockets, cosmonauts and astronauts. Later in my life I shook the hand of a man who shook the hand of my all time hero Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, that was for me like touching history, if only secondhand (excuse the pun).

I have just been rummaging through old boxes of stuff and found the picture above – yellowed and faded – it still makes my heart flutter. I wish I’d been to the moon.
