The piece is inspired by the work of British painter Francis Bacon: After Muybridge - Study of the Human Figure in Motion - Woman Emptying a Bowl of Water, and Paralytic Child on All Fours (1965).



Deidre Kelly, The Globe and Mail, April 21, 2001

...the work is visually extravagant, emotionally complex and absurdist in a marvellously theatrical way. Bravo.


Michael Crabb, The National Post, April 23, 2001

..most striking contribution...Chartier uses the inspiration of Bacon's often startling images to forge a mysterious, intriguing work with powerful emotional reverberations.
