Francis Bacon, in selected pieces
"To try to discover why Bacon's works appear to us, perhaps more than those of other artists, as real blocks of emotion, we will... take the tangent. Do not dive into the heart of his paintings, the details of their composition or subject, do not seek their meaning at any cost, in other words, do not look at them as we usually do and try to abandon our reflexes of thought in order to follow other paths.
"We will approach them laterally, grazing them, retaining only what may seem incongruous but still turn out to be significant clues: a syringe, a light bulb, a wide open mouth, a toilet bowl, a cage, etc. By also trying to make his works resonate with those of certain artists - painters, writers, filmmakers, musicians - and to listen to their echoes, it is true that the sensitivity of one often allows us to better measure the intensity of the other.
"Not to understand at all costs, just and first to feel. Just as Bacon wanted. »
