ORDOVAS LONDON EXHIBITION TO FEATURE BACON ART

Ordovas Gallery London has announced a new exhibition featuring the art of Francis Bacon, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Pablo Picasso. The exhibition titled ‘Self’, is a public display at Ordovas from October 14th through to December 13th 2014.

‘Self’ will look at the interpretations of self-portraiture of four great artists of the 21st century, spanning modern and contemporary eras. It promises to trace the development of the self-portrait, including Pablo Picasso’s early modernism, and the angst-ridden essence captured by Francis Bacon.

We’ll bring your further information on the Francis Bacon art included in the exhibition as it becomes available. Of the exhibition the Ordovas website writes:

“Since the first hand print was left on the side of a cave, the making of images has been intrinsically bound up with self-portraiture and its concerns of self-presentation and self-preservation. During the sea changes that took place in the art world in the 20th century, this timeless human activity was thoroughly re-examined. Photography, mass media and existentialism would all come to have an impact on the way that artists as diverse as Picasso and Hirst captured their own image.”
