Esoteric and Animated Art-Films
Drawing on alchemy, esotericism and myth, I endeavor to architect resonances between real and ideal registers through the moving image. As a multimedia artist whose work spans painting, animation, experimental film and music, and as a scholar working in philosophical and esoteric domains, I am interested in creating experimental culture underpinned by philosophical and esoteric themes. Understanding the power of images to transform consciousness, I endeavor to create culture with the capacity to transmute meaning in the psyche of the viewer, calling into effect otherworldly forces. Combining my repertoire of artistic powers, and predicated on esoteric study, my films are poetic and alchemical experiments that seek to transmit knowledge through the image-word.
