A Selection of Bacon's works...

Bacon's ability to shock and amaze is extremely evident in these paintings. Not only does he cease to amaze the viewer, the works have a significant shock value. Bacon has this ability to create works which disgust the viewer and at the same time fascinate them, pulling them into his world of weird forms and terrifying emotions. . .

Bacon's work never really fitted into any category. Critics and others alike have tried to classify his work, but it seems it cannot be done. Is he a surrealist? Is he an existentialist? The answer lies in the fact that his works have qualities from many movements, making his works impossible to categorize and showing that he can't be labelled as any particular 'type' of artist.
