FOR THE APOCRYPHON CHAPEL

       I spent the summer months away from my Burgundy Studio ~ running The 2023 Summer Seminar at Torri Superiore Italy in July, then visiting Vienna in August. But with the Fall, I'm back in my studio and working on The Upper Aeons ~ the first large painting for The Apocryphon Chapel. Here's where I'm at now...

EXHIBITION IN NATIONAL MUSEUM IN PARIS

       I have one of my works hanging at The Musée Quai Branly in Paris!

       From November 14th 2023 to May 24th 2024, this National Museum of Ethnology will be holding the exhibition titled SHAMANIC VISIONS - AYAHUASCA ART IN THE PERUVIAN AMAZON (Visions Chamaniques - Art d'ayahuasca en Amazonie peruvienne). The exhibition features Amazonian artists like Pablo Amaringo. But the final rooms offer Visionary works 'from the Western Counter-culture,' where my painting The Vine of the Dead shares a room with works by Robert Venosa and Martina Hoffmann.

       One example is the Pop Apocalypse Podcast hosted by Matthew J. Dillon. Over the course of an hour, we go deep into dreams, visions, the afterlife and my Apocryphon Chapel project. Give it a listen...

 

NEW PH. D. THESIS ON VISIONARY ART

APRIL 15, 2023

       I'm pleased to see more academic research into Visionary Art. My work ~ particularly my First Manifesto of Visionary Art ~ was seriously reviewed for her Ph. D. thesis. 

       A year ago, Lisa Hester interviewed me for her research, and we developed such a good rapport that I was invited to give an online lecture at her university. Then Lisa and her 10-year old daughter joined us for The 2023 Summer Seminar at Torri Superiore Italy.

       Her thesis makes a very interesting comparison between three branches of Visionary Art ~ Outsider Art, Jungian-style Symbolist Art and the Counter-Cultural Visionary Art of Psychedelic Trance Festivals ~ attempting to draw forth a clearer definition of the term.

       I read an advance copy and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is definitely worth a read once it is published.
