Violence of Feeling | 2019
According to Francis Bacon, the role of a painter is to 'unlock the valves of feeling and therefore return the onlooker to life more violently'. This painting series is my own take on emotional pain, the proximity of pain and pleasure, and the violent and lustful urges we, humans, are subjected to in the same way as animals. Like in the Intimacy series, I investigate the emotional complexity of relationships and the violence they evoke in us.
