The famous Odessa Steps Sequence inspired this image. Bacon much admired the scream by the nurse on the steps. I have fused him with the nurse and the pram, he has become the scream he much admired. The colours in the sequence go through the primaries, to the complimentaries, to monochrome. What I have tried simply to achieve, the colour of a scream, which of course is subjective. Various people shown the sequence, chose different colours ,that they felt represented the scream for them personally.
