“Late last year, I visited the Bacon exhibition at the Tate Britain. I had previously seen isolated examples of his work in london and New york; I felt very priveleged to be in those rooms but the overwhelming emotion was one of pure, unadulterated shock. My senses were being ravished. I felt I was reeling from room to room, I had never experienced anything quite like this before.
