Max Bucaille

I tried to remember if I had ever created anything like Bucaille’s work. I love this work. Versions of this are probably the first collages I discovered. Its as if we have been drawn into another dimension, another reality. As I recall it was a magazine called Bizarre. Using some of their collages I wrote an English essay on Albert Camus. It was something about choices. It was actually 2 essays, split, running paralled down the page beside each other with these occasional collages. When I went to get my essay the English teacher (a pretty woman about 25) opened the door of her office about 3 inches and slid the essay out to me. She gave me a B. I think it was a B. With a big question mark at the end.

His work started in the 1940s. There is very little info about him except that he was good with numbers. And words. And that he had an obsession with his hair. Losing it. He also was not in shape. Failed to crack the rowing team at Oxford. Although I’m not sure he went to the school. Short sighted in his left eye he had an acute sense of smell.

Ivan Generalic’s work reminds one of Rousseau. Or Breughel. Or perhaps many of the wonderfully illustrated children’s books. His work is charming.It is the kind of work I would like to have been able to produce. Although if I had the talent I don’t believe that I could have continued to produce so much work of the same style.
