Summary Francis Bacon in Your Blood

Francis Bacon in Your Blood

Im Peppiatt managed to record scores of their conversations ranging over every aspect of life and art love and death the revelatory and hilarious as well as the poignantly tragic Gradually Bacon became a kind of father figure for Peppiatt and the two men's lives grew closely intertwined In this intimate and deliberately indiscreet account Bacon is shown close up grand and petty tender and treacherous by turn and often uite unlike the myth that has grown up around him This is a speaking portrait a living likeness of the defining artist of our times. I really liked this book It is well written and multifaceted It s true that there is some repetition of things Francis Bacon said but I think he repeated them because he thought they were important and didn t want them to be forgotten by his faithful friend and biographer He would also paint the same subject in multiple studies another form of his repetition and underscoring of important ideas and images There seemed to be a need for ways than one to say the same thing As I read I would research his and other artists work that was being referred to so that it was also a wonderful visual and even auditory journey I have always loved Francis Bacon s paintings and certainly have seen his influence on my own work It s fabulous to be privy to his everyday life It is just unbelievable how this man who was a prodigious drinker was able to create the way the did I found it horribly interesting that he said when he had a very bad hangover he worked well because he could only focus on one thought at a time It was all he could do Of course that thought was to paintBecause we come from nothing and go to nothing and in between there s only the brilliance of life even it means nothing FB After Nietzsche 13357I want a deeply ordered image you see but I want it to come about by chance You always hope that the paint will do for you but mostly it s like painting a wall when the very first brushstroke you do gives a sudden shock of reality that is cancelled out as you paint the whole surface FB 30What what wants in art nowadays is a shorthand where the sensation comes across right away FB 30D you you know I think one thing about artists is that they remain much constant to their childhood sensations Other people often change completely but artists tend to stay much the way they ve always been FB 34When I was very young I found this marvellous translation of AeschylusIt had these images in it I thought so beautiful they ve been with me ever since The reek of human blood smiles out at me was one Then there was this other one I can t uite remember about Clytemnestra sitting over her sorrow like a hen They are superbly visual I feel myself very close to the world of Greek tragedyoften in my painting I have this sensation of following a long call from antiuity FB 48There s a caf I pass every day that s full of people gesticulating wildly which I avoid because I imagine the noise inside must be overwhelming Then I go in one afternoon out of curiosity and am astonished to find it s completely silent because the city s deaf mutes all congregate here to communicate in sign language FB 78When he tells me that he first thought he wanted to be a poet then realized deep down he wanted to be a poem I know I want to go on seeing him FB 79I m only trying to deform into truth Francis says After all photography has done so much so how are you to make a portrait nowadays unless you can bring what s called the facts of someone s appearance directly and violently back on to the nervous system You have to deform the image There it is If I didn t have to live I wouldn t let any of this out 85Yet it s not a mess it s an extraordinary visually riveting creation Bacon s studio Anywhere you look you could scoop up an armload of fascinating imagesYou could scuffle to and fro throwing up new images other strata all the time because this carpet of heads and limbs and bodies some killed some with terrible wounds is at least ankle deep And I guess that s exactly what Francis does as he walks up to his painting and back as he works constantly kicking up new combinations new visual suggestions triggers of ideas as he calls thempaint the real hero of the room over which it has established its dominionWell there it is Francis says I live in this kind of sualor But it s useful This is my compost It s the compost out of which my paintings come Fifty years from now people will see how simple the distortions I make really are I ve deliberately simplified myself I m simply complicated 86It s just the same in painting So much has already been done and then photography has cancelled out so many other possibilities When I started painting I needed extreme subject matter And then I found my subjects through my life I mean one s work is really a kind of diary or an autobiography FB 88does Francis nurture it because he knows the deeper the guilt the potent the images will be 93I m not trying to say anything in particular in my work I m simply trying to convey my sensations about existence at the deepest level I canpeople live behind screens And perhaps every now and then my paintings record life and the way things are when some of those screens have been cleared away FB 111Painting has had so many possibilities cancelled out by photography that it s and a uestion of trying to deepen the game through instinct and chance FB 116I ve been very lucky to make a living out of something that obsesses me FB 135Somehow you have to get the paint down in such a curious way that it comes back on to the nervous system exactly and profoundly If this image is going to be worth making at all you see it has to unlock sensation at a deeper level Otherwise a photograph can so the whole thing much better FB 138My impression is that you re working way outside photography while actually absorbing a lot of its techniues I MP say a bit the way photography did when it first appeared and had to appropriate so much from painting 138I only want the sensation without the boredom of its conveyanceI ve always believed that great art comes out of reinventing what s called fact what we know of our existence a reconcentration that tears away the veils that fact or truth acuires over time To have something like the whole sea at the end of a kind of box you could look into So small and yet to have the whole sea in it FB 139There are only a few great works where techniue and subject are so closely interlocked that you can t separate one from the otherFB 148I think Degas pastels are among the greatest things ever made FB149What I do may be a lie but it conveys reality accurately That s a very complex thing After all it s not so called realist painters who manage to convey reality best FB 149Painting 1946 I myself uite like it because it has something really artificial about it and I think all art that s worth looking at is deeply artificialArt itself is an artifice It s an illusion and if an image is going to work it has to be reinvented artificially Reality has to be reinvented to convey the intensity of the real FB 151After all most people are neither one thing or another Homo heterosexual They re just waiting for something to happen to them FB 157There s nothing you can do about death Death exists only for the living FB 164If they were sitting in front of me they would inhibit me and I couldn t practise on them the injury I inflict on my work I like to be alone with the way I remember them And I hope to bring them back poignantly and violently FB 165Art s above all a uestion of going too far FB 191as I ve got older I have to say I think less and less about happiness because my interest has grown much for my work than my life FB 255Champagne for my real friends real pain for my sham friends FB 316You ve only got to look in the shop windows to see there s nothing left any It s like Munich You can feel a disaster s coming just by looking in the shop s windows FB 326It s Francis himself who exists in circular time drawing me into it by the power of his presence In this particular moment all the tenses have been laid out side by side The sensation is all encompassing as though one had stepped into a parallel universe and for a long time it made me intensely anxious as if I were under the influence of an unknown drug 327Something in Francis himself reached back to the ancient mysteries like the Sphinx or the Oracle of Delphi reverberating across the centuries with their enigma intactHis work poses the most searching uestions about existence uestions that are asked from one civilization to the next because no lasting answer is found Why is man created alone among the animals on earth in the acute consciousness of his mortality Should we not assume our animality display our passions and contradictions without shame openly pant roar and scream What meaning if there is a meaning at all can we attribute to our brief span Francis incorporated the tensions of being human into the very grain of his paint Examined close up the swirling impasto appears encoded with specific evidence specific human traces that continue to rehearse and echo our fraught existence That is perhaps the underlying reason why his figures spun out of this infinitely suggestive stuff come across as a concentrate of all the impulses and confusions of our flesh unresolved and shockingly alive 337 On The Edge (The Brazen Boys, of their conversations ranging По-здрави бебета.
