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

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?

Print on paperGeorge 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. He also studied (real) painting during evenings at the École des Beaux-Arts, in Le Havre, from about 1897 to 1899. In Paris, he was an apprentice to a decorator and was awarded his certificate in 1902.

Early works were impressionistic, but after seeing the work of the “Fauves” (Beasts) in 1905, Braque adopted a their Fauvist style. This  group  included Henri Matisse and André Derain  etc. Their use of bright, vivid and brilliant colors was their  response to the emotional side of artistic representation.

Braque’s paintings of 1908–1913 reflected a new interest in geometry and simultaneous (multi) perspective. He conducted an intense study of the effects of light,  perspective and the technical means that painters use to represent these effects, seeming to question the most standard of artistic conventions.  This was the beginning of Cubism… (?)

The Sampler #05 with Finish the Story

Zig Zag SEPT 1981

The End..? I’m still shell-shocked. Finish The Story‘s debut gig was better than the second coming of Jesus Christ. Hastily flung together four weeks ago for this gig, they were raw, powerful and exciting. They’re a three-piece band from such diverse Islands of Aptitude as Bromsgrove, Bristol and Evesham.

Fronted by the blonde and the beautiful Nicola (the Evesham ingredient, hostess at the notorious Vauxhall Inn), they skipped through a short set of six embryonic classics. The drum machine went places no drum machine has been before, Gary etched lines in the air on his keyboards (I thought he was touching em .. Mick Mercer), Pete murdered his rabid guitar in true Bauhaus style, and above it all Nicola’s vocals soared clear and sane.

She bounced and bopped through the catchy “Chant of the Boxed-in Society”, caused a major emotional earthquake with “Apparently He Couldn’t Hear Me”, bounded through “Inspiration Didn’t Come Today” and “Alone With A Picture In A Matchstick Frame”, forgot the words to “The Dodgy Concept”, and . finally ended with “Playing At Life”.

They left. the audience happy, if a little confused, Through the last two songs a video of unsurpassed excellence played. They were wonderful. What more can I say?

Next band up were Evesham’s own Dancing. Did..(Cut!…. Ed).
