Dolcett, which began its activity at the end of the twentieth century, draws scenes of Bondage, Cannibalisme on women exlusivement, and of assassination of women whom it classifies in two categories: by Empalement Gynophagia Stories and by Hanging Asphixia Stories , the women who are the victims being most of the time agreeing. Its drawings all, almost carried out in black and white, have a distinctive style which makes them immediately recognizable.
Its universeThe singularity of the work of Dolcett is to be also that of a visionary. The universe where it involves the reader is at the same time that of a twilight dictatorship without last nor future and at the same time that of a company of leisure arrived at its ultimate stage which commits suicide by tasting its own flesh. In this cannibalism of State which is supposed to answer the demographic explosion, the woman fulfills the same food function as the Green Sun in the novel of Harry Harrison, with the difference which it gives itself in meal as a subjected and resigned slave.
The young women live thus in waiting of the moment when they will be indicated to be reproduced on the list of meat collection, where them number will be drawn with the fate at the time of a lottery. This arbitrary to which no woman in age to procreate can withdraw herself under penalty of dead by no means does not exclude the diversions and other skids inherent in any company, and which are used with the author as arguments to his stories. Head gold tails tells in particular how Carrie goes to his/her uncle, whereas this one makes him believe that its hour came to be able to make its meal of them.
If these settings with dead do not seem to have of another justification only that which is ordered by an invisible and very powerful administration ( The Execution off Joanne ), they do not appear differently than by the pleasure of the spectacle offered like that of the fitting of an electric chair in Current Affair , the " real show" what puts in scene in concert the husband and the lover of Nena in Housewife' S Hangup , or in this play which in Ali' S Study Bureau consists to hang two women and to roast that which will succumb the first. Or then, all that is it as absurd as the infringment as Penny, the motorist of Tightrope Zone , is seen inflicting to have forgotten to put its indicator… what leads it straight to the bracket. Because like says to him the prètre, " it is not the crime which is important, it is the punishment ".
The originality of Dolcett, which is the mark of its talent, is to standardize the apparent horror of the executions and to register them in the routine conformist of a middle-class which likes to meet around a barbecue and whose values resemble closely that of America of the Seventies.
Its style, its tonalityAs the adventures of Karyn suggest it, nunuche with glasses which appears in several accounts where it there is regularly impaled, cooked, roast with all sauces, the stories of Dolcett speak about the consumption of the body of the women and the alienation of those by mixing cold irony and humor with the second degree. When the torturer of the Club X request in Nancy if it has one something to say before the pin which impales it him does not arise by the mouth, it answers simply; " I am sorry. I am shaken so much, I am a little nervous "
The codes are well established there. The exclusion however of Club X which, for the representation of scenes of torture in background with its implements of whips and chains, is inspired rather by Histoire of O, the other accounts obey common rules: no bloodshed, not cries of suffering, not of hatred, not of insults misogynists, any terror. And whereas the blondes are introduced like innocent deceived or malchanceuses victims, and that they vainly endeavor (like Kay or Penny) to dissimulate their nudity after being stripped, the brown ones following the example Marsha in The Roasting Grotto offer a surface psychological profile and are able to insult with the passage their torturers of some " s.o.b. ".
Like being used as symbol with this so particular style, the famous machine to impale the women to roast them then alive, conceived and developed in To dine by design by Kay, a coed in social sciences, occupies a central place naturally. Using on several occasions, Dolcett explains of it mechanics in depth in Merideth' S Last Interview , when a journalist pushes the conscientiousness until trying out the machine on itself for the needs for his report.
Often hung or decapitated with the axe not without to be penetrated last once, to be emptied their entrails once passed to the pin, the women, always naked and almost all similar (except some knowledge of the author), do not continue any less to express their feelings. Just they complain about the discomfort of their situation or the offense made with their decency, while remaining until the end impeccably capped in spite of the grease of cooking. So that all is well, one calms their concern, one reassures them on the quality of their flesh, one compliments them for the pieces of choice (vulva, anus, centres) which they will provide when they are been useful on the tables.
Those which will be likely neither to be killed by their Master and lover, nor the privilege to be with the menu of a meal of businesses organized by their husband, will be invited to go in a slaughter-house before finishing with the stall of a butcher. Feast Day tells us with precision the successive stages. Only some whose resistance to the torment will have inspired the respect will be exposed out of window, will be used as umbrella-stand, will have their head in trophy or delivered in envieux comparison with other young people and future candidates with the spit-roaster.
An atypical artistDolcett is an artist difficult to catalog. If the constant presence in its accounts of nude women to irreproachable figure, exposed from every angle, make of it an erotic and pornographic draftsman undeniable, it however does not express interest exaggerated for the sexual practices of its characters. Those besides are dispatched without none the partners expressing irrepressible orgasm. In fact, it would be righter of speaking about penetrations of pure form, as if their goal were only limited to draw up the report/ratio of domination, so much they make generally only accompany one conversation, prolong, accompany a setting in situation… or facilitate the entry of the pin.
One would not be wrong also to make a sadomasochistic author of it because one does not find in his drawings usual conventions of the kind. The humor of which it powders its sequences dédramatise with the situations which would be insupportable if they were treated with a minimum of realism. Actually, Dolcett does nothing but play with the image of the woman as an object who emerges from the consumer society of the Sixties, and it makes of it a toy which one enjoys to handle in all the directions and to cut out of pieces. The repetition of some practical like the ritual depilation of the women before putting them to cook, would rather bring it closer to the fetishistic current.
But it does not slice only in the world of the creators of cartoon by this inimitable style, it also is essential like an atypical personality, very private, which continues to maintain such a mystery that one even believed a moment that it was about a woman. Which significance is it necessary to give to the fact that it is presented in Ali' S Study Bureau under the features of the husband of a woman without face, one of rare in its work which escapes death?
The few people who met it these last years ensured that it drew only for the pleasure, had never sold anything, leaving with its works, without they never not being printed or were published, any freedom to join the public domain. For this reason they are only available on the fabric.
It is thanks to the good care of Karyn, the conceptrice of Put It of Dolcett , that they obtained a visibility there.
