Working for over a decade in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hagler has recently relocated to Los Angeles.  Known mainly for his large-scale semi-figurative canvases, the work has followed a natural evolution in the artists’s personal exploration and anxiety around religious thought and its history.  Since 2006, he has exhibited his paintings and multi-media installations throughout North America and Europe, including several solo exhibitions.

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.

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.
