Estate of Francis Bacon

Bacon Studio at Ferens 2017
Deepening the Game / 2017 / Ferens Art Gallery

Commissioned by Ferens Art Gallery as part of Francis Bacon ‘Nervous System’, 2017 – ‘Deepening the Game’ was an intergenerational engagement project which recreated Francis Bacon’s studio in one of the Ferens’ Gallery spaces. Participants were encouraged to forage amongst the imagery scattered on the floor, as Bacon did in his Reece Mews studio, to find subject matter for experimental paintings.

The project was further developed as a downloadable resource, commissioned by the Bacon Estate. For information on running artist led sessions, please use the contact form, or, to download the resource see : Estate of Francis Bacon , and Experimental painting workshop.
