Saul Steinberg, Illustrator*
Reichek invented his own ritual --a form of graphic liturgy of great
beauty and intelligence. We can find temporary salvation by seeing
and especially experiencing Reichek's work.
U.S. cartoonist and illustrator, best known for his
line drawings that suggest elaborate, eclectic doodlings. He was
associated with The New Yorker for more than 50 years, during
which time the magazine published more than 600 of his drawings and
featured his work on its cover 85 times.
Reichek's work is like a written language from another planet, with all
the suggestiveness of poetry written in English. On this planet
they're called paintings and drawings, but I'm sure someplace these
works would be considered texts. One feels that perhaps behind them is a
born in Connecticut in 1935, Considered by many
America's foremost writer of prose poetry.
