“There Are Two in Us”: Human Consciousness, Cave Art and Autism
But we have also considered the portraiture painting of Francis Bacon which bears a certain resemblance to some of Nadia’s pictures, specifically in the rendering of the human face in both artists. It might be said that in both cases, the conventional, socially coherent sense of facial expression that we all know implicitly is disturbed, erased, or simply missing. The crucial difference between them however is that Nadia is unable to read facial expression or understand emotion, while Bacon is seeking to move beyond a representation of such expression. Nadia cannot perceive the meaning of facial expressions whilst Bacon is seeking to overcode them in order to rewrite their semiotic charge. In the former, the semiotic content is absent, in the latter it is overwritten.
