They SHimmer Within  

They Shimmer Within
A new, cognitive-evolutionary perspective on visionary phenomena - Released March 2018

An exciting new perspective on visionary beings and other mind-blowing phenomena encountered with strong psychedelic plants and drugs comes with the publication of the third volume in my 'Visionary Humanism' series of books. Here, a rational analysis of those strange otherworldly 'elves', shadow people and visionary beings is undertaken in several ways, from an anthropological survey of their common appearance in religion, folk-beliefs and visions of peoples throughout the world, to a psychological model of how these experiences arise which draws upon the cognitive science of religion and evolutionary psychology to initiate a new type of conversation about psychedelic phenomena: a cognitive/evolutionary visionary one. Beautifully illustrated with over 35 illustrations, this book will be released March 2018, and will be available from this site, as well as from Lulu and Amazon UK, USA and globally.

DreamCatcher 2018  

PaintUp with Kamamma - Dreamcatcher South Africa
Melkhoutfontein, Stilbaai, Western Cape, South Africa - February & March 2018

I am delighted to be returning for a third time to the town of Melkhoutfontein, Western Cape, South Africa, to continue the next phase of the PaintUp with Kamamma mural initiative with Dreamcatcher South Africa. This project seeks to restore the cultural memory of the community of Melkhoutfontein, and help to build a prosperous future for the people by transforming their town into a photographic tourist destination. I am extremely proud to be invited back to paint yet further murals with the help of volunteers and locals, inspired by the prehistory and rock art of the region. Photographic updates to follow!!

Colombia Gathering  

Semilla de la Anaconda - Seeds of the Anaconda
Yumake Eco-Village, Rio Don Diego, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia - 9th to 16th Dec 2017

I am thrilled to announce my participation in an exhibition to accompany the 'Semilla de la Anaconda' gathering of indigenous people, shamans and artists taking place in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta indigenous reserve in Northern Colombia. This exhibition is a collaboration between Dreams & Divinities and 'Semilla de la Anaconda', and a programme of mural painting and ceremonies is planned for this shimmering meeting. I will be in attendance, and have created a new work - Chiguexica Muisca - celebrating the return of the Muisca ancestors, to exhibit along with a glittering array of other luminaries!

Voice Project  

The Voice Project - UV Update!
Creating a 13-panel, 33-ft long visionary mural of the Island of Britain

My Voice Project, my initiative is to create a 13 panel, 33 foot long visionary mural expressing the imaginal and mythical visions of the Island of Britain, has reached an interesting stage, with the acrylic underpainting and the first draft of the UV image completed. I have also significantly overhauled the Voice project exhibit pages here on my website, and beautiful scans of the latest stages can now be seen, including the UV image that lends a powerful sense of the project's magical, mythical imagery. Though I've been working on this since 2010 in one form or another, there's a long way to go yet!
