Art and poetry

                          Van Eyck: The Crucifixion with the Virgin and St John
  El Greco: The Crucifixion
Mantegna: Women at the crucifixion
Both, like plasticine, can be so malleable or, at the other end of the scale, so nuanced.  Small suggestions take you somewhere else: a new direction, a new discovery. So much is so possible from the same root. A new colour, turn of a limb may bring a new, altogether different image, as the magnetic words on the fridge quite randomly scatter into unexpected meanings, fresh ideas.  

Bacon: Three |Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion

      Three Monsters. 
Here are three monsters:
Agony, a greyhound skinned; howl.
Hollowness, a hen plucked;  peck.
Dementia, a bundle of hay;  scratch.
I have stood them on furniture
to pose.
They were in the entrails of spirit,
I picked them out with a forceps.
I thought they looked remarkable in the light.
I thought the viewing public
might want to scrape at them
with their spatulas.
