Dreams & Divinities Mexico II
January 31st - February 28th 2015 : Ammon Ra Gallery, San Pedro Garza García, Monterrey, México

The 'Dreams & Divinities Mexico' travelling show moves to its second venue in the city of Monterrey, Nueva Leon, Mexico, and I am delighted to be exhibiting two pieces - my Toci Coatlicue Teteo Inan and my Mayan Inscription - at Ammon Ra, a newly opened gallery of the Visionary and Fantastic Arts. Further venues for this touring exhibition are planned for 2015, which showcases the work of a huge array of artists including Liba Waring Stambollion, Carrie Ann Baade, Cody Seekins, Gromyko Semper, Otto Rapp, Gabriela Garza Padilla, Mark Henson and many more!

Several new images and exhibits are now online here at biroz.net, including two new paintings in the Fernal World series - Lucaion and Afer - as well as two new 'Visions' paintings, Ch'ul Totik Ixim and Song of Sky Trickster. Also now online is a beautiful set of resources for Fernalese, the Fernal Language constructed as part of the forthcoming book project The Encyclopaedia of Fernal Affairs to be released in May 2015. An exciting update to my Voice Project will also be posted here before the end of March 2015...

archaic visions  

Archaic Visions
A blog of thoughts and explorations from Bruce Rimell on the Visionary Art Exhibition website

On my visit to Mexico in 2014, the talented artist Otto Rapp, who runs the online visionary art hub Visionary Art Exhibition, invited me to begin a blog on the site exploring prehistory, indigenous worldviews and anything else that might be of interest. Thus has been born Archaic Visions, a regular column of short, focussed essays upon archaeological artefacts, mythological images and non-Western worldviews. I am also using the blog to serialise my grand thesis on visionary experience in the 21st century, entitled ON VISION AND BEING HUMAN. An illustrated book of this thesis is planned for late 2015, and I'm delightfully grateful to Otto for the space in which to muse!


Chimeria Festival of Visionary Arts and Sciences
October 18th - November 2nd : Various venues in Sedan, Champagne-Ardennes, France

I am thrilled to announce my debut at the 2014 Chimeria Festival des Arts et des Sciences Visionnaires taking place this October and November in the town of Sedan in the Champagne-Ardennes region in France. I will be showing three works created in the first half of 2014 and inspired by my recent visit to San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico, including my K'u Ikil Ta Yaxal Vinajel capturing the spirit of a single vision, and my Song of Lucaion. I am extremely happy to be included in this high-profile event and will be travelling to Sedan to enjoy the festivities!

visionaries exhibition  

Visionaries - Seers Of The Soul

I am delighted to announce that three of my artworks are to be exhibited at the Visionaries - Seers Of The Soul exhibition at Blue Door Gallery in Yonkers, New York, USA. Even more delightfully, my artwork The Dream Of Bellerophon is being used to promote the show on the flyer and the cover of the exhibition catalogue (available to purchase here) and my three works are joined by a glittering array of visionary and sureal artists: Can Emed, Erik Heyninck, Martina Hoffmann, Brigid Marlin, Miguel Tio, Robert Venosa, Liba Waring Stamboliion and many more. An open event takes place on Sep 6th, and a closing event on October 11th.

fernal world  

The Fernal World
Explorations of a paradisical otherworldly garden through art, poetry and song

The exhibit of 'The Fernal World' is now online here at biroz.net. These are artistic and poetic explorations of my personal vision of the Garden of Fernal Delights, a paradisical Otherworld that is being collectively created by a group of artistsas part of an international visionary art and poetry publication. Visible here are several dual-image artworks of the Fernal Cosmic Power salong with poetic song-cycles called the Tiarzecatar - the 'Thirteen Songs of Creation' - and the Lucaioncatar - the 'Song of Lucaion'. Forthcoming will be a grammar of Fernalese, a playful and magical invented language!

Voice Project Crowdfunding Pitch Image  

The Voice Project - Phase 3
Creating a 13-panel, 33-ft long visionary mural of the Island of Britain

I am thrilled to announce that my crowdfunding pitch for the Voice Project was partially successful, in that I managed to raise enough funds to cover purchase of materials. This initiative is to create a 13 panel, 33 foot long visionary mural expressing the imaginal and mythical visions of the Island of Britain, and I've been working on it for some two and a half years so far, sketching and laying out panel plans. Full details and photographic updates for this project are being posted here - collectable art print sets and some original artworks are also still available to help fund this initiative.

Minoan Epiphany  

The Minoan Epiphany - A Bronze Age Visionary Culture
Introducing the first draft of four years of artistic and archaeological research

For the past four years, I have been researching the Minoan Epiphany, a series of Bronze Age images which radically challenge modern Western notions of visionary experience and the sacred. I am delighted to present the first draft of this research, which takes a strongly archaeological-technical view but is written in an accessible style. Several other new essays are also presented in the Words section of the site, including a short sequel to my Eleusis project.

Divining Dream  

Dreams & Divinities - Divining The Dream
A new visionary publication featuring the work of 60 artists and 25 poets

I am thrilled to announce that two works from my recent Eleusis series and a short poem are to be included in an international visionary art publication Divining The Dream. Envisaged by editor Liba Waring Stambollion as a global expression of love, this beautiful book is being sold to fund an international itinerant art show across four European cities.
