Bacon's malerisch, Van Gogh's diagram, and the baroque fold
Preventing the artistic object from becoming a symbol by expressing its emergence from a common materiality. Van Gogh's swirls and hatchings. Bacon's curtain. Bacons turn against the figural is a turn against the figure becoming symbolic, against the nonsense of a logic of sensation that is seperate from its emergence from materiality.
The baroque material, Deleuze, The Fold. The monad. Composibility.
