Works Roger Williamson
These artistic influences, in conjunction with his own esoteric upbringing and practical experiences of magick, mythology and dream control, form the matrix, a collective oeuvre upon which his paintings and writings are an extension.
Using diverse creative media, whether painting or writing books, Williamson endeavors to develop techniques that materialize the sensuous dreaming experience into the language of the waking world. Aspiring to reintroduce mystery and ambiguity back into the adventure of human existence through the creative process, encouraging artistic audiences towards “living effulgent and invigorating lives, revitalized from the secretions of our subconscious.”
Roger Williamson is the creator of Tarot of the Morning Star deck and the author of The Sun at Night.
Symbolic Mythological Artist
If you don’t create your own reality you are condemned to live in someone else’s
Williamson, like the universe itself, loathes stasis.
Wanderlust and constant self-transformation figure in every aspect of the UK transplant’s life, from his ongoing exploration of ceremonial magic, shamanism, and a few dozen related disciplines to his nine published books–but they’re the driving forces behind the oils and pastels.
Equally adept at tweaking received themes and representing newly broached regions of his deepest psyche, Williamson defies cookie-cutter assumptions about visionary artists simply by following his heart.
Neither prophet nor poet the painter most often finds (and/or loses) himself playing journalist/spy in some of quantum reality’s diciest opportunity zones, intent on bringing us everything Prometheus didn’t.
