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 […]

In the Pyramid Texts of Ancient […]
Greek God of Sleep Hypnos Oil on canvas, 16 inches by 20 inches, 2015. SOLD. Inspired by a bronze statue from the British Museum London which I first encountered in the late 1960’s early 70’s. The god of sleep Hypnos, first appears in mythology in the works of one of the earliest Greek poets, Hesiod (lived around 700 BC), where he as (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death) were the terrible sons of Nyx (Night). He was, however, generally viewed as benevolent to mankind. The god was frequently mentioned in literary sources, and associated with poppies and sleep-inducing herbs. Hypnos’ wings allowed him to move […]
Roger Williamson New Gallery at the Salón Arcano: Salon Arcano The Salón Arcano exhibits works that deny the existence of a dividing line between art and hermetic philosophy. Hermetic Philosophy and Hermetic Art are not two independent manifestatios that have some connections and links between them: they are one and the same thing. Our tradition teaches that art is the expression of our philosophy and our philosophy is the expression of our art. The Salón Arcano was, in its origins, inspired by the Salon de la Rose+Croix of Paris, created in 1892 by Josephín Péladan, which had the intention […]
