I’ve been exploring my influences lately through the medium of drawing. Celebrating artists whose work has resonated with me, and made an impact during my formative years. First up, Francis Bacon. I have always found his paintings remarkable because of the sense of movement, and life they posses—he captured the essence of his subjects in such a profound way. I drew from video footage shot during his younger years, and peeled the acrylic paint off my palette for background colour, (Bacon had a large circular mirror in his studio, and mixed paint on the walls).
