WAR, TrAUma and ART
FRANCIS BACON (1909-1992), the British artist, painted provocative and disturbing images that carry a raw sense of anxiety and alienation- the viewers walk away with a underlying feeling of tension.
Despite this tension or maybe because of the tension - Bacon is recognized as one of the most influential artist of his times.
War and trauma, it has an affect on the artist, the audience and the ART.
About three years ago, Judy Holm had an epiphany ... a sudden and striking revelation to create, THE GLOBAL FINE ART AWARDS. We are now witnessing the genesis of that idea.
