WCA Ashmolean Museum Francis Bacon / Henry Moore: Flesh and Bone 29 October 2013

It was with great excitement I travelled back to Oxford for this exhibition as Francis Bacon & Henry Moore are two of one of my favourite artists. Also, I was meeting up with an old friend who first showed me the way around a molecular biology laboratory. The exhibition was slightly disappointing as most of Bacon’s work was already familiar to me & I felt Moores sculptures lost impact by being shown inside.

Inspired I tried a copy copy of Francis Bacon’s when I got home.After FB Portrait III 29 Oct 13After Portrait III FB V2 30 Oct 13
