The upper left-hand side of the square canvas is a patch of Carbon black made less so by dust and particles that lay atop. By stark contrast, the majority of the canvas is covered in swathes of unbleached titanium and cadmium red. The wide strokes zig-zag in a hurried fashion to create an oblong sphere type shape, however, the red and white tones bleed together and bring to mind images of bacon. Beneath said bacon, are muted-mixed tones aside from splotch of blue. Finally, on top are splatters of deeper crimson alongside several polka dot type patterns of white and orange.
Often while I paint or even in my free time I find myself watching (or listening if I'm painting) documentaries about different artists over the course of history. Sometimes those stories and the ideas being spoken about or that I'm seeing will leak onto my canvas. In the case of this piece, I was rewatching “A Brush With Violence,” and while I wasn't trying to invoke the process of Francis Bacon or his style, yet somehow bacon ended up on my plate. Of course a bit cheeky here, but his story resonates with me on several levels, or maybe as an echo by six degrees.
