In 2017, for Francis Bacon: ‘Nervous System’ at the Ferens Art Gallery – Dom devised an experimental Painting workshop for adults: Inspired by Bacon’s studio, and his cultivation of accident, the workshop offered a unique opportunity to experience Bacon’s painting methods.

Working on rough, unprimed canvas, participants could choose from old jumpers, stencils, and grit to vary mark making, and were encouraged to forage amongst the maelstrom of imagery on the floor to find subject matter as Bacon did, in his Reece Mews studio. See Experimental painting workshop at the Francis Bacon website for further details.
