    Standing infront of a Francis bacon painting is a huge religious expierience for me
    It's like the bible for modern times.
    It's like writing the bible the day after Hiroshima
    It's so personal
    Yet so eternal
    A witness to human caused damage.

    It was a very odd situation.
    Eternal music to an art historians ears.
    An odd life has to central to everything that stands to be yet created.
    Curiosity wants the odd.
    Odd has the guts to not be part of a group.

    Everything is meant to be so neat.
    So simple .
    "This guy has to be Francis bacon".
    Why do you need more?

    I learned so much from this documentary – thank you BBC. This is the kind of good TV that we all need to spend more time with. Francis Bacon in my opinion is an artistic genius regardless of what you may think of his lifestyle, which i personally find tragic. Be that as it may he is self taught and, somehow, managed to express humanity on a canvass as never done before. His work is brilliant in emotional expression, graphic form, and color. He should be an inspiration to all artist and art lovers alike…

    So many rich..But dull and boring bastards today.
    Pick up any "celebrity" magazine today..hardly any has any substance.
    Just temporary face interest.
    Confident airheads make a lot of noise.

    The dichotomy is that he could be incredibly formal.
    Opposed to the raw emotional need to express and create.

    Labels are made by idiots.
    A label has no intelligence
    A label is as dull as it gets.
    Often spoken by people as dry as straw.
    With no fucking balls at all.

    Not every life fits in a neat box.
    Able to be explained by some kind of analysis
    it would be incredibly naive to say you really understand a person.
    Ie the dreaded "expert ".
    An intelligent fool.
    And a safe intelligent fool.
    Hardly cutting.

    Bacon was a self confessed masochist and was brutalized by his partners who are the subjects in his paintings. So I've always felt that the reason they are mutilated and distorted is to demonstrate him punishing them. Like some kind of pictorial revenge of some sort.

    The irony is
    that such an emotional educated person lived a gilded life.

    If you really feel and care
    how the fuck can you just take the abuse lying down ?
    The victim dies alone
    And yet you say you are religious and care?
    It's a false disgusting sham

    Why can i be here to witness such horrific cruelty
    As I myself only want to love.
    I want to take away horror and pain
    But I can't do this.
    So my rage against horror is so strong I can't ever forget it.
