Four Sided Sculpture> Designed around a conversation with Francis Bacon and the BBC in 1971. An interpretating of Imediacy, Anger and Chance. Bacon said in the conversation; 'Every Object Has It's Passions and Implications. In my interpretation of the interview, I wanted to capture Imediacy, Anger and crystalizing time, freezing a moment so to speak.The moment we are under attack whether from media or frustrations but essentially a moment. Typicaly I used a large throne like chair as in Bacon's Pope Innocent X. Although Bacon used a curtain in his image I replaced that idea using the attack with real silver bullets and silver cables.
The image of the screaming man is set behind 10mm thick clear Perspex/Acrylic, the outer image was painted using Acrylic then overlayed with graphite and ink. Engraved within the lid of the sculpture is a gun site which cannot be seen in this photo.
