Bacon's Arena

UK, English, 95 mins

  • Director: Adam Low
  • Producer: Anthony Wall

CGiii Comment

From the Anglo-Irish ruling class, Bacon was born.

Low's profile is punctuated, just like Bacon's life, by Bacon's lovers - a surprising bunch of misfits.

The influences and the experiences that shaped the art - Bacon's early life is shadey - possibly, due to the fact that he lived as a prostitute, without his benefactors...would Bacon rise in the world of art?

Role reversal was his life - drawn to the handsome but dim, de-sensitized and frank, Bacon's world is his alone and he made his unflinching rules.

We are left with his visions, these rabid stark images that were created from a life of masochistic near-extreme.

He was not a weak man and neither was his art.

Low had an easy subject - simply, because there is a mountain of archival material and a worthy film - he created.
