FRESH 2018 ANNUAL SUMMER EXHIBITION

RICHARD KOLKER — BACON'S LIGHT

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

The light bulb and ceiling of Francis Bacon’s London studio, 7 Reece Mews, has been recreated using the 3D modelling and synthetic photography techniques of architectural visualization. This interior has then been illuminated by the light from each painting in Bacon’s career. The resulting 584 images are arranged chronologically and grouped in the 8 decades over which the artist worked. 

We are left to decode the rhythm of these images in light of the significant global events of the time in which the paintings were made, and the turbulent moments in Bacon’s personal life.
