Tarot Hierophant, Appearance of Awareness


Hierophant Major Arcana Tarot Divination Card Hierophant major arcana tarot card represents a quality within us that registers an awareness of phenomenon.

See Tarot Hermit and Tarot Devil In the foreground of the card the scroll of life unfolds and as it does so the […]

Hanged Man Tarot Card, Hunting Ground Of The Paradoxical Bat


Hanged Man Tarot Card The Hanged Man tarot card represents a world where consciousness is given up to sleep and our nocturnal eidolon, in the image of a bat, is released to hunt through our dreams. Here is where the waking mind sacrifices its sense of identity to the paradoxical bat so it will be free to roam. This path corresponds to the element of water related to the powerful Plutonian depths of our subconscious minds where contact is established with other dimensional entities. Because our traditional concepts of language are not understood by the beings we encounter at these depths we […]

Dream Linguistics, Dream Language


Dream Linguistics Dream linguistics. dream language,  is a technique of communication employed by classes of diverse orders of beings desiring to converse with one another. Application of this method is not dependent on the communicating energy systems being of the same race, species or even coexisting to the same time, space or dimension.  The communication will naturally occur when an in-between[i] consciousness state engages between the communiques.  This in-between consciousness is the realm of “creative dreaming,” which has a correlation with the concepts of imagination and art.

Artist Statement


Artist Statement Art is an externalization of struggle to rationalize and give form to something not understood. The artist, like the oyster, is driven to externalize this conflict into the image of a pearl. In some circles this definition is called exorcism. I believe art should be appreciated through a viewer’s individual intercourse with the work, allowing the image to speak for itself  and not be prejudged by societies academic paradigms. This concept has close parallels to techniques first acquired in childhood, such as the ability to stare at clouds and see recognizable images arise and fall in the mind’s […]

Sabbat or Dark Interpreter, De Quincy Dreams of Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow Oil on wood, 48 inches by 48 inches, 2016 Since the Middle Ages, until comparatively recently, a conjecture of public opinion held the view that visits of witches and warlocks to the Sabbat were a physical experience. In recent times this view has, by many, been transformed into a concept  that attendance at the Sabbat is induced by hallucinogenic substances, ingredients often absorbed through the skin from the well known “flying ointment”. See Sacred Mushroom and the Cross by John M. Allegro for an illustration of […]
