Fragments of a Portrait

Or, I came to eat life with my gaze.

  • So, I’m currently obsessed with reading, Francis Bacon in Your Blood, by Michael Peppiatt. For me, as a painter, Bacon is hard to ignore. And I love a good crazy biography, which this one promises to be, at least on the nature of bohemian excess.
  • Reading the book inevitably led me to search youtube for Bacon interviews. I’m instantly reminded of the David Sylvester interview I saw some time back. To me, this interview has the “best” opening sequence ever.

I couldn’t resist, I give you my homage, press play, and depending on your internet speed…

P.S. Eastern Kentucky, wait a few minutes, the clip will eventually load, I promise.
