Art Description

Photography: Metal, Print, C-Print, Aluminium Print on Aluminium.

This is an art work from my "Baconiada" series.
Once, when I visited London there was a big Francis Bacon exhibition at Tate Britain — a major event in the city. I wandered across London and constantly came across Bacon. His works were everywhere: in the underground, on street posters, on bus decks, on plastic bags in the hands of passerby. It seemed that London air was impregnated with these images, and people suddenly started to look like Bacon's paintings: grotesque and lonely.
I photographed London. Upon coming back home, I felt a need to address Bacon again. The "Baconiada" series emerged as the synthesis of my photographs and my impressions of Bacon's exhibition.
The model of Bacons's space is theatrical; his character stays on the stage, lonely and exposed. I kept this stylistics — rigid and arbitrary, but at the same time giving a big plastic freedom.
My works are computer-born. In my opinion, Bacon anticipated digital deformations, so that the language of a digital drawing is quite appropriate for my dialogue with him. I didn't intend to "immitate" Bacon: I wanted to get connected to him.
