Francis Bacon, substance, creation, his being human. The artist's narcissism, his becoming a painter in order to be loved. A tragic dandyism: society's trends and agitated excess. Drunk with the gin of Soho's pubs. A mixture of smoke and grotesque laughters. He oozes art and swallows life. London's streets are damp and dark, rich of sensations, attractions, tentations. The ferocious excitement of the male body. Muscles, hair, flesh. A brief oblivion that loosens the constant traction of the spirit. A tender and violent love, born from the feebleness of left out men.
