Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation. Gilles Delueze
“So the act of painting is always shifting, it is constantly oscillating between a beforehand and an afterward: the hysteria of painting . . . . Everything is already on the canvas, and in the painter himself, before the act of painting begins. Hence the work of the painter is shifted back and only comes later, afterward: manual labor, out of which the Figure will emerge into view . . . . .
From the Chapter: “The Painting before Painting” page 80.
