Study for self-portrait
While on a visit to Cardiff museum i came across this painting by Francis Bacon which i thought would strongly relate to my project ‘outside/inside’. At a first glance the subject has a relaxed posture however when looking at the centre towards the face where the features are difficult to identify, the subject doesn’t appear relaxed at all. The gestural strokes of paint show there is some sort of confusion or disturbance going on within the person. I feel that this could aid my project when exploring the human mind or dreams.
