I have always been interested in different cultures, legends, myths, stories, and I loved watching, curious about everything. Throughout all this, I developed a reflection involved in my world. These cultural wanderings naturally inspired me when I started to draw, sculpt, paint, write.

 

That is why my approach is part of a dream world, based on the tales, legends and other mythologies. This with a search for recurring themes but also universal and their projections on the present or the future. So, so sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, often somewhat surreal, my work reflects the vision of our world, from a distance, beyond appearances.

 

Throughout my writings, as of my achievements, characters go, come and go, and similar others, reflections split into kaleidoscopes, according to their stories woven with the history of which, little by little, they become the frame. Through my writings, my accomplishments, I wish to express the light, as the movement, the rhythm ... the music of life.

Gustave Flaubert

Gustave Flaubert est un romancier français, né à Rouen en 1821, mort à Croisset en 1880. On compte ses romans sur les doigts d’une main, mais chacun est un chef d’œuvre qui fait de son auteur un des géants de la littérature française, au confluent des courants romantique et réaliste.

Fils du chirurgien en chef de l’Hôtel-Dieu de Rouen, il grandit dans un hôpital ; enfant, il connaît la souffrance et la mort mais la douceur et la gaîté d’un foyer familial très uni, où l’on aime rire, tempèrent la mélancolie propre à un tel lieu. Ces premières années marquent son caractère, qui marie tristesse et goût des farces ; son œuvre, dominée par le souci de la précision scientifique et la recherche de la vérité sous les faux-semblants.

Dès les bancs du lycée, il rédige seul, et fait imprimer, un petit journal Le Colibri où apparaissent certains des thèmes qu’il va développer bien plus tard ; il en est convaincu, il sera écrivain ! Il interrompt ses études de droit pour raisons de santé, c’est la chance d’accomplir son destin. Pour autant, ce dernier n’est pas pavé de roses ! Flaubert écrit, réécrit, hésite, s’éloigne, revient, écrit encore… si bien que chacune de ses œuvres demande un labeur acharné qui s’étend sur des années. Bien plus tard, son amie George Sand lui reprochera de « travailler dans la désolation ».

D’avril 1848 à septembre 1849, il rédige La Tentation de saint Antoine, sujet évoqué dans le Colibri en 1835. Il lit le manuscrit à des intimes. Échec ! Ils lui conseillent de mettre « sa muse au pain sec, pour la guérir de son lyrisme ». Il commence alors ses recherches pour Madame Bovary tout en partant vers l’Orient sur prescription médicale (octobre 1849). Il publie le roman en 1857. Attaqué pour immoralité. Scandale. Procès. Acquittement. Flaubert est atteint mais c’est le succès ! Il entreprend alors de « ressusciter Carthage », sujet historique moins polémique. Il réunit une documentation encyclopédique et se lance. Salammbô paraît en novembre 1862 ; c’est un grand succès acquis au prix d’années passées dans les « affres du style ». Aussitôt il rédige le plan de L’Éducation sentimentale, sujet quasi autobiographique. Publiée en novembre 1869, c’est un échec même si Banville constate que « tout le roman contemporain en est sorti ». La Tentation de saint Antoine paraît enfin en 1875. L’œuvre est complexe, inclassable, la presse l’éreinte, le succès est modeste mais sa reconnaissance est universelle : Tourgueniev écrit que « Saint Antoine est une des œuvres les plus extraordinaires qu’il connaisse ». Il met en chantier un autre grand roman, Bouvard et Pécuchet, satire restée inachevée de ceux qui croient savoir et n’ont pas même appris à apprendre. Enfin, il publie en 1877 Trois contes, recueil de trois récits de couleurs et thèmes si variés qu’ils résument à merveille tout l’art de Flaubert.

Moqueur, Alexandre Dumas s’est un jour exclamé « Flaubert ? C’était un géant qui abattait une forêt pour faire une boîte. » Ce à quoi le Normand aurait pu répondre : « Je ne veux pas flouer le public, voilà tout... » C’est pour vous, chers lecteurs, que Flaubert a patiemment sculpté ces jolies boîtes, ouvrez-les !

Max Pam

Max Pam is a world acclaimed Australian photographer. Born in Melbourne in 1949, he grew up in a suburban, oppressive and culturally isolated environment. The emerging counter-culture of the late 60s gave him the opportunity of an escape route to the world.

Max Pam left Australia at 20 to assist an astrophysicist as a photographer. This first trip overseas from Calcutta to London proved to be initiatory. Ever since, travelling has remained the red thread to his creative and personal development. Overtime, Pam has hanged around in many places on Earth but has kept his humanity, his optimism and sense of empathy.

His “carnets de voyage” are a fantastic occasion to take a fresh and “unpolitically correct” look at countries you may already know. Once accepted his fantasy, his artistic freedom and taste for provocation, you see the world through his eyes, those of a “forever” teenager who pursues the dreams of the 60s. Every picture looks a gift and an unexpected encounter between the viewer, the character and this white stranger with round glasses and long hair!

Max Pam currently teaches photomedia at Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia.

Publications include the leading international journals; his photographs are represented in major public and private collections in Australia, Great Britain, France and Japan.
