Almost Famous

Author: Helen

Mr Bucket was mentioned in the Arts pages of the AGE yesterday.

He was part of a review of the artists market where SO sells his Bucket wares: Subversive artists blooming in Rose street, by Robert Nelson. Boo to the mean editors at the AGE who didn’t put the article on line.

SO’s paragraph reads:

Some pieces lie on the side of farce, as with Mr Bucket, a range of clothing that features a suited man, perhaps from the 1950s, with a bucket over his head. Gathering an apparently heroic reputation, the character is the archetype of the corporate automaton, his head an empty vessel without the faculties of sense or communication.

    I saw it.

    I heart Mr Bucket.

  • shula says:

    I never realised, though, that he is so deep.

  • Dysthymiac says:

    a suit is subversive?
    I had assumed the bucket repels evil waves from mobile phones n stuff, and that Mr Bucket was v. clever

    Let us hope the article results in massive trading at the next market.

  • Helen says:

    Heh… maybe it it’s subverting the suit… or, wait, we need the SPS (Special Postmodernist Service) to explain that one…

    *Sirens wailing*

    *Postmodernists jump out in special protective gear and shove an abstruse meaning sideways into the suit*
