(Creativity and Motivation Weekly) Get scared watching MJ's "Thriller" and get in touch with your dread via Francis Bacon's annihilating art. We discuss horror by the by and consider its use in our practice. Too, some lighter notes: Novels in America and where they exist geographically. Book recs. A poem by Max McDonough. Come get spooked.
I had the pleasure of seeing one of Bacon's pieces in the Des Moines art museum and it was spectacular! I wasn't familiar with him before then but his piece was the one that immediately caught my eye and stayed with me long afterwards.
