Super urban villas and the paintings of Francis Bacon
The paintings of Francis Bacon are a distortion of reality. Bacon's work is about extreme isolation - by which is meant the internal aspect of isolation. The urban villas came about by rendering these paintings as a three-dimensional experience. It is a game played between mass and void, between heavy and light, between investing in peace of mind, and an indictment of reality. Paris, Amsterdam or New York. Berlin, Buenos Aires or Barcelona. In all the villas isolation and individualism are the main thrust. Which is why I refer to Bacon's paintings. He distorts reality, so as to bring a more deep-rooted reality into view.
