Francis Bacon

These are all portraits of George Dyer, Painted by Francis Bacon. These all lack human form, but show reminders of the human face and body such as the ear, the arm, and the face. They are presented as monstrous bodies, yet they still hold something that is recognisable to us and our own bodies. This brings us the kind of anxieties that monstrous bodies will always bring up. Anything that deals with the liminal aspects of the body is a subconscious reminder that our bodies are like this already and is something that society and glamour is constantly trying to cover up and is unspoken of.
