Supported by and working with Heritage Learning for Francis Bacon: ‘Nervous System’ at the Ferens Art Gallery – Dom has developed an experimental Painting workshop.

Above are images of the attempted re-creation of Bacon’s studio. The workshop was developed to offer a unique opportunity to learn more about Bacon’s working methods through an immersive experience. Participants were given old jumpers to make marks, stencils, sand, grit and dust to add to paint. They worked on rough, unprimed linen canvas and were encouraged to forage amongst the maelstrom of imagery on the floor to find subject matter.
