Myra Rob and I attended the curatorial tour and talk on these two artists at Tate Liverpool yesterday.

Seeing an artist none of us knew alongside one we do know, and seeing them both from some very different perspectives was a real privilege. Lassnig had explored so many things through portraiture, and in particular our relationships to technology, that it put me in mind of Mike Corcoran’s recent ground breaking exhibition at Glyndwr Sycharth Gallery where the artists examined the extent of our minds in relation to technology. Whilst Bacon and Lessnig appeared not to have met, there were many similarities in their exploration of the human condition. A most enjoyable evening. Thanks to Myra for encouraging us to go!
