The Thompson Landry Gallery is excited to welcome Virginie Bocaert, for her third solo exhibition in Toronto. Body and Soul is comprised of works from her eagerly anticipated new series which exudes deep emotions through her beautifully expressive style. Bocaert’s work encapsulates feminine sensuality exploring, the intimate link between our physical body and the spiritual nature of the soul.
Virginie Bocaert’s emotionally inspired paintings are like breathlessly diving into the figures that emerge from the depths of her backgrounds. In her latest series, each work exudes a raw passion. Bocaert’s style has evolved by her use of both photography and paint on her canvases with the figures are becoming much more developed, and taking on a strong personality of their own.

Love is the Devil

The AGO presents a film screening of Love is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon by English filmmaker John Maybury, starring Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig and Tilda Swinton. The film concentrates on artist Francis Bacon’s tortured relationship with his lover, model, and muse, George Dyer, a small-time thief. The film draws heavily on Daniel Farson’s authorized biography of Bacon, The Gilded Gutter Life of Francis Bacon. Love is the Devil depicts a painful love affair based on dominance, submission, snobbery, and sadism, brought vividly to life by images reminiscent of Bacon’s paintings.

This film is presented in association with the exhibition Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty (running from April 5 to July 20).
