Search Engine Optimization - Get a life!

What do people who spend their working days in front of the computer do when they get home? Do they turn on their PC or Mac straight away and eat diner in front of it gaming or searching for porn?

Computers drive me nuts, they are so predictable - they conk out or create the same prescriptive rubbish over and over again....

This is what I do, which probably proves my words of warning to my kids, "You spend to much time in front of that computer, it will drive you insane' - I think I have!

I have begun a series of prints called “Saint Austell” - a saint from the 6th century who was a confessor and disciple of St. Newman of Cornwall, England. Modern scholars believe that Austell was a woman named Hoystill, a daughter of Brychan of Wales. Her (?) feastday  is June 28.

Q U O T E
Christianity with its unchangeable principles, and without misjudging the justifiable demands of the age, undertakes to guide the woman movement also into the right path. The life-task of woman is a double one.
  • As an individual woman has the high destiny obligatory upon every human being of acquiring moral perfection.
  • As a member of the human race woman is called in union with man to represent humanity and to develop it on all sides.

A new exhibition of prints and smaller works is planned for June 2011. Below is an extract from his blog:
Peter Bright - Artist

In preparation for an exhibition in June I have begun to draw again. My previous methodology relied on me subcontracting my creativity to either ‘chance’, allowing the medium to take partial control over the finished image or by letting the computer system deal with my creativity in its prescriptive manner – the program has ways of dealing with commands in a very limit way, hacking the software is the only way of producing images that are different from our everyday visual blitzkrieg of imagery…we are subjected to via the Internet, the printed page and video.

Going back to the basic skills of drawing is an interesting excursion – a journey I’m not sure I will complete. Drawing a life model for the first times in decades was a bit daunting but old tricks and shortcuts were soon remembered and in many respects drawing is a bit like riding a bicycle.
