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.
