Commissioned by  Heritage Learning for Francis Bacon: ‘Nervous System’ at the Ferens Art Gallery – Dom devised and delivered an experimental Painting workshop for adults.

Inspired by Bacon’s studio, and his cultivation of chance and instinct, the workshop offered a unique opportunity experience Bacon’s methods through an immersive experience. Participants could choose from old jumpers, stencils, sand, grit and dust to vary thier mark making, and worked on rough, unprimed canvases. They were encouraged to forage amongst the maelstrom of imagery on the floor to find subject matter just as Bacon did, in the chaos of his London studio.
