Greetings, art mavens. I was born the year in the Baby Boom that tabulated the most births, that being 1957. The planetary influence of Neptune made its indelible mark on my entire generation, bringing with it a marked unrest over staid political mores and traditional roles and institutions as well as having brought with it enhanced mystical outlooks and praxes as they concern our place in the cosmic scheme of things. So it is with not a small amount of credence that I put into which direction my mind has flown and the heights to which I continue to fly as I take inventory of my surroundings, whether they’re imaginal, remembered, or experiential.
Among the range in the œuvre of my artwork you will find it encountering many areas. Not only will it encompass everything from folklore, Classical mythology, the grandeur of Nature and the sprawling beauty of the cosmos, which, in my most humblest of opinions, combined bare witness to The Magic, but also the many fond memories of my childhood, imagery culled from the arcane, the occult, from fairy tales, the miraculous wonders of our light bodies, the enigmas of the paranormal, Forteana, Ufology, the Fae, the interdisciplinary science of catastrophism, numbers (the full comprehension of which still eludes me), simulacra, wild animals, animal companions, and fabulous beasts, as hybrid animals once considered the legendary monsters of yore were once called.
Ofttimes when an artist comes out of their Eldafaryn closet, SHe will have many profound things to depict to an otherwise mundane audience. Whether these artistic efforts are drawn, painted, collaged, sculpted, committed to prose, poem, or the immortalism of song, many people will ‘bee’ astonished and amazed by these creations. However, the Eldalië artist hirs‘elf will consider these things merely as depictions of things that are as commonplace to hir as eating and breatheing are for everyone else. That would, in and of itself, put me in the category of an artist who creates those kinds of works that are relegated under the broad-spanning umbrella term of Outsider Art. I will thus happily include mys‘elf under that nomenclature. Newer pieces will ‘bee’ included here as I deem fit. In the gentletime, enjoy the outdoors more often. Peace.
