Last night they showed a doco on Francis Bacon which I found really interesting. He generally works quite instinctively and doesn’t feel the need to tell everyone why he does what he does or what it means – he said it just is. He didn’t study at Art school but just fell into it via some design skills he was exhibiting. This was a 1970’s interview that I decided to stop watching after about an hour because it was obvious Bacon was drinking and although he was still sharp he was affected by alcohol – not good interviewer. I guess it was the 70’s.
