  • Mathias de La Celle

    “My painting is not violent, it’s life that is violent. Even within the most beautiful landscape, in the trees, under the leaves, the insects are eating each other; violence is a part of life. We are born with a scream; we come into life with a scream and maybe love is a mosquito net between the fear of living and the fear of death.” Francis Bacon

Study for Crouching Nude (1952), Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon was no easier on himself as a subject, as he was with others. He depicted himself just as he did with his sitters. In this self portrait the artist be suffering from a hangover. He could also be referring to time and death. Is the artist simply suffering from a headache or is his hidden wrist bleeding into the sink?
