About The Artwork

The appearance of the spirit, which is often seen in incense smoke, has close parallels to what is known as pareidolia, to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.  The concept of pareidolia leaves us wondering whether the spirits are within or without, or maybe both. What are these energies? Like ourselves they are systems which are facets of universal life force: the infinitely small and infinitely large existing in our dimension and also systems existing in other dimensions. When we call on their powers during magical working, I believe that they can equally call on ours. Drawing on our energy which goes generally unnoticed by the lay person but to the magically empowered individual these currents can be detected and if need be resisted. The individual, unable to resist, may fall victim to fatigue or sickness, while those possessing some insight into altered states of reality, but lacking the knowledge of its origins and laws may fall victim to mania. There is a specific way of arranging the worlds of the Tree of Life so as to manifest Daath, the gateway leading into other dimensions. The worlds when so arranged become the machine of the Merkabah. Like intermeshing gears, the worlds of the Tree engage to drive the Merkabah machine. In my short story “On The Arrival Of The Machine And Its Mode Of Operation” I provide a dramatization of the machines appearance and a description of its components. When laying out a magic circle we are manufacturing a synthetic environment conducive for a specific energy to want to temporarily occupy it so that we can communicate with it to better understand what it is and to encourage its essence into our own sphere of sensation.

Roger Williamson is a visual artist, residing and creating in Minneapolis Minnesota. Born in Loughborough, England, in 1947 and growing up in Coventry he was inspired from an early age by the French Symbolist painters of late nineteenth century France, These artistic influences, in conjunction with his own esoteric upbringing and practical experiences of magick, mythology and dream control, form the matrix, a collective oeuvre upon which his paintings and writings are an extension. Using diverse creative media, whether painting or writing books, Williamson endeavors to develop techniques that materialize the sensuous dreaming experience into the language of the waking world. Aspiring to reintroduce mystery and ambiguity back into the adventure of human existence through the creative process, encouraging artistic audiences towards "living effulgent and invigorating lives, revitalized from the secretions of our subconscious." Roger Williamson is the creator of Tarot of the Morning Star deck and the author of The Sun at Night. Statement Art is an externalization of struggle to rationalize and give form to something not understood. The artist, like the oyster, is driven to externalize this conflict into the image of a pearl. I believe art should be appreciated through a viewer's individual intercourse with the work, allowing the image to speak for itself and not be prejudged by societies academic paradigms. This concept has close parallels to techniques first acquired in childhood, such as the ability to stare at clouds and see recognizable images arise and fall in the mind’s eye out of what initially was perceived as chaos. Through this technique, letting a work speak to a deeper self than the superficial mind involves the viewer in the creative process, their imagination evolves the artwork to another level. The work is no longer stationary but part of a wave as is nature herself.
