Le Clown, Marcel

Le Clown, Marcel
Unknown, ca. 1970

Acrylic on Stretch Canvas

Abtsract Hitchcock-Clownism

With Marcel we see the clown as the French would say, who is la needie.  Not le clown as Jerry Lewis would be le clown.  For that would be Le Clown Jerry Lewis, and this is Le Clown, Marcel.  But Marcel is a needful thing and he must be saved by you, or we all will die a death of deaths.  Plaintiff in his desire, Marcel does not beg for you attenion, he commands it, against a background that makes this work as dizzying, yet improbable.  Yet here you are, and here is Marcel. Life is a funny thing, no?  We say "yes, quite."
