FIGURE IN A LANDSCAPE

FIGURE IN A LANDSCAPE

“Figure in a Landscape” is a painting by Francis Bacon that interprets a photograph of his lover, Eric Hall, dozing on a seat in Hyde Park, London. The artist depicts a disfigured, abstracted, partly over-painted man, lying across a park bench. With a blue sky and flowers drained of color in a murky, somber landscape, it seems, forebodingly, to be at once both day and night. Painted during World War 2, the work’s banal title belies the currents of violence churning within the frame. As a Tate gallery label puts it: the painting is a “combination of aggression and everyday mundane reality.”

“Figure in a Landscape” at Foxy Production comprises works by Carlos Almaraz, Mamma Andersson, Cynthia Daignault, Hamishi Farah, Justin Fitzpatrick, and Em Rooney that capture the moment we find ourselves in, where violence is inherent in the everyday.
