“The model that poses for you is made ​​of flesh and blood, but what must be caught on canvas is its emanation. (…)

You distort what you see, in your own manner, and we can say that the particular mode of distorting things signifies a certain attitude towards life. ” (Francis Bacon)

The painting “A Couple” is an assemblage of two studies after live model, mounted on a board which was then put on a stretcher.

This intervention on realistic studies was made several years after their execution,

by an ambition to give the model life other than by fidelity to reality, fidelity which I find fairly uninteresting.

“A Couple” is available for sale on my Saatchi Online Gallery : http://www.saatchionline.com/art/Painting-A-couple/43191/1854201/view
