Francis Bacon Inspiration

Posted on February 12, 2013 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

The Art Gallery of NSW is a huge melting pot of inspiration for me. I went yesterday particularly to view the Francis Bacon exhibition, to see how I felt about his art up close. His large canvases with melting men, on colourful flat backgrounds, which are his later works, were my favourites. 

Life is what we feel and I think however I felt very glum looking at these paintings.

The ground floor was inspiring for me as well, the  sculpture, photography, installations I found just fantastic. I am not sure how it will translate in my work, I just know that it will somehow. I left the gallery feeling light hearted, and eager to create something. 

Here are a few pics I captured flashelssly on my Iphone. 


I am a huge fan of oversized objects.
