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!

Archaic Visions
A new blog from Bruce Rimell on the Visionary Art Exhibition website

On our recent visit to Mexico, the talented artist Otto Rapp, who runs Visionary Art Exhibition, an online hub for the international Visionary Art scene, invited me to begin a blog on the site exploring my views of prehistory, of indigneous worldviews, queer theory and indeed anything else that might catch my eclectic attention. Thus has been born Archaic Visions which will consist of short, focussed essays upon archaeological artefacts, sacred sites, mythological images and other occasionally-considered gems. I'm genuinely thrilled about this, and grateful to my friend Otto for the space in which to muse!

D&D Mexico  

Dreams & Divinities, San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico
March 21st - May 21st 2014 at La Enseñanza Casa De La Ciudad, San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico

This spring equinox, March 21st 2014, sees the opening of another chapter in the 'Dreams & Divinities' story, with an exhibition of International Visionary Art in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico in the heart of Maya Country. A glittering array of artists come together with engaging speakers, musicians and indigenous ceremonies to pray for Peace and Vision. I am exhibiting my artwork Toci Coatlicue Teteo Inan (expressing the Aztec Image of Indestructible Life) and my Mayan Inscription to commemorate the show. I am also giving a talk on Creative Mythology.


London, Paris and Berlin
Autumn 2013 - Announcing my exhibition debuts in three European capital cities

This autumn has been an exciting time for my practice, with artworks exhibiting in three European capitals. In September, my Persephone was shown at the Atelier Porte-Soleil, Paris, as part of the Dreams & Divinities 2013 Travelling Show. In October, several recent works were exhibited at the Forum Factory in Berlin, and finally as part of Guerrilla Zoo's Modern Panic IV exhibition, my 2011 work Xibalba Song was exhibited at Apiary Studios, Hackney, London. Future appearances in exhibitions planned for Mexico, the Philippines, Hong Kong and the USA promise an equally exciting 2014.

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.

Invisible College 7  

Invisible College - 7th Edition
Samhain - Winter Solstice 2012 - Early 2013

COMING SOON -- A selection of my artwork will feature in the 7th edition of the visionary magazine Invisible College, published by visionary artist and renaissance man Gwyllm Llwydd. The majority of the work featured is from my ongoing art project Minoan Honey but other works are also shown along with a brief editorial.

The cover art is a partnership effort of Aloria Weaver & David Heskin - their work is also featured in this edition of the magazine along with fellow visionaries Nemo Boko, Cynthia Horowitz, Amanda Sage, A. Andrew Gonzalez, Jim Harter, Gwyllm Llwydd, Amanda Fielding, Martina Hoffmann, Maura Holden and Alan Piper. I feel truly honoured and excited to share space with such brilliant and shining company.
