Every time I see an e-mail from Ellis Faas I get excited as I know that it will be something beautiful.
This week I’ve got an e-mail about the new video called “A Family Affair” . The video has such name because it was shot in Ellis’ house, the model is her brother Thijs (how beautiful are his eyes?!) and the music was written by her daughter – Flavia.
“As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made a great impression on me because of the use of colour – it was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become something of my own and hasn’t much to do with Bacon any more.”
How gorgeous if the photo above and the video?! Words fail me to describe it…
PS. Do you know who else is a of of Bacon?! Alex Box! You can read my interview with her here.
