Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was a reclusive self-taught artist whose visionary work was discovered only upon his death in 1983. Working in a modest house overcrowded with art outside of Milwaukee, Von Bruenchenhein painted fanciful and phantasmic landscapes of other worlds, some inhabited with primordial sea-like creatures. His skillful finger paintings were made wet-into-wet in one fervorish sitting. Besides writing poetry and theories on the genesis of life, he also compulsively made miniature sculptures from dried chicken bones, ceramics of plant forms and hundreds of loving, semi-nude pin-up photographs of his wife Marie.
