Birthday Boy – Bacon Roll

‘Birthday Boy – Bacon Roll’ is a small 20cm (w) x 28cm (H), self portrait translated from a photograph of my own son on his birthday. His birthday made me aware for the first time of the precious and all consuming love that one feels for ones children. The portrait I show here is ‘Bacon-ised’. (an homage to Francis Bacon’s distorted figures). I painted it as a bleak contrast to the photos of the birth of my own son. (see also the paintings of my son as ‘Dorian Grey.’)
