6 Conclusions It is no surprise that both Lloyd Newson’s, Francis Bacon’s and to some extent Oscar Wilde’s homosexual referenced work received objections from many members in society. For example, Margaret Thatcher, Tory Prime Minister, described Francis Bacon as “that artist who paints those horrible pictures.” A well known philistine – Thatcher’s artistic interests seem to be limited to collecting pretty ceramic figurines – the remark could be read as referring to both Bacon’s often violent style of painting and to his usual subject of the interaction between two men, which in Bacon’s view was neither affectionate nor relaxed but turbulent and traumatic.’ (1996, Cooper, online) Protests of the openness and public support of acknowledging homosexuality inside and outside of the arts have always occurred. DV8 are one of many to be the creators of art which has provoked these objectors. “The Sunday Mirror gave DV8 a massive leg-up. “Gay sex orgy on TV” shrieked the headline for their story on the screening of Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men, prompting a flood of complaints to the TV network, angry questions in parliament by Tory MPs – and a huge surge in DV8’s viewing figures.” (2008, Roy, online) This still exists today, only last year ago one of the dance works shown at the production of ‘In the Spirit of Diagalev’ at Sadler’s Wells, bought protestors both inside and outside the dance theatre, over its explicitness about sex, homosexuality and the involvement further with the Catholic Church. Conservative elements within society seemed to worry that if sexuality could be questioned then what else could? What could homosexuality lead to? Would control even break down? Although Newson has been more willing to discuss how life and work than Bacon or Wilde, they all shared a need to express their ideas without being restrained by society’s reactions to their work. This took considerable bravery – the bravery to create art which was so ‘out there’ for its day meant risk. And without artists taking risks everything will stagnate. I SUGGEST FINISHING HERE NEW I believe that the fact all three of these artist were homosexual are of great importance to their work. I believe if they were not, these works would most likely never of been made, as I am sure it was their experiences as homosexuals, and the ‘hitting of nerves’ by a harsh society, that encouraged their art. Art always has and I believe will always be a substance of the artist’s feelings, as what is so beautiful about art, is its ability to be an expressional form. Cite This Work>GET ANSWER
