Blood on the Floor
- Painting, 1986
This strikingly simple theme of a splash of blood on the floor, treated on a monumental scale, is characteristic of Bacon's late work, where he reduces to a minimum so as to attain maximum effect. There is an anecdote that this painting was inspired by blood left on the floor by John Edwards, after a fracas, but Bacon would have considered this an irrelevance.
Bacon has heightened the shock of the blood on the sand-colored floor by juxtaposing it against a fierce orange background, where all sense of three-dimensional space is deliberately negated. Such points of reference as the hanging light bulb and toggle, and the wall switch seemingly suspended from its conduit, only increase one's sense of disorientation.
