This is my piece for the Gallery Nucleus All Together Now: A Tribute to the Beatles!!
When I was in high school the local radio station played "Bedtime Beatles" every weeknight. It was a pretty fantastic mash up of every and any Beatles song, including music from their solo careers. I would tune in and when something really good came on I'd tape it (how analogue of me) right off the radio. I kept those tapes for a long long time.
When I was researching (e.i.: googling Beatles pictures) for this piece I came across a LOT of blogs curated by teenage girls who are STILL totally, head over heals, in love with the Beatles. It warmed my little black heart. I would have been all over tumblr if it had existed when I was a teen, tumblin' photos with captions "omg i love him" and "my heart just stopped" and "why wasn't I born 40 years earlier".
Aesthetically, the early Beatles are my favorite. Their matching suits! Soooooooo cooooooool! And Beatle boots! If I was in a band I'd want us all to wear matchy matchy outfits to perform.
FABulous! Well, someone had to say it.
I have been in love with Georgie since I was nine!
But I might love this piece even more! This is so beautiful- love the dual tone faces, so clever xox
Fantastic! I especially love that you've captured their likenesses with such simple shapes=)
I. LOVE. THIS. Really great 60s vibe with the colors as well. You really knocked it out of the park, Brigette!
Now you have got me singing "Hello Hello" in my head :)
Lovely work Brigette!
Haha awwwww, I love purple Ringo!
