This piece reminds me of the work of British painter Francis Bacon. It’s bold, disturbing, chaotic, grim, and funny all at once. Brilliant layering of images. The faint burgundy halo of spiky swirling “hair” is a masterstroke. I don’t really know what else to say beyond the fact that “The Fall of Icarus” grows on me the more I look at it. Incredible.
