Max Bucaille (1906-1996) He was born in Sainte Croix-Hague next to Cherbourg, and led a career as a mathematics professor while also dedicating his life to the search for “the real place” at the end of a daydream – a daydream dear to his favorite philosopher, Gaston Bachelard. He created poems and surrealist collages from 1930, and collaborated with artistic reviews and publications from 1936 to 1939.

Upon his return from captivity in Czechoslovakia, he became a member of the Surrealist Revolutionary Group from 1947 to 1949 with Noel Arnaud, Jean Laude and Christian Dotremont. While continuing to pursue the art of collage, he enriched his palate with painting and sculpture. He created a new pictorial technique: “photopeinture” with much time spent in a darkroom

His meeting with Emile Malespine gave rise to a friendship, and many the two would exchange and compare many techniques. Bucaille regularly went to Clairefontaine in the Yvelines to visit the former house of Malespine, and it was in this magical safe haven that he would create his paintings and sculptures.

He was a founding and prominent member of the international group “Fantasmagie”. He is considered one of the masters of fantastical realism. He was also a member of the Collège de Pataphysique.

Creator, seeker, tireless experimenter, he never stopped perfecting his techniques. Always moving, much like his work, with the constant desire to innovate, to surpass himself, putting everything in question, life, his work…From http://www.maxbucaille.com
