Included inside is a cornucopia of delights:
Jim Harter‘s article on Johfra (Johfra Bosschart) explores the fantastic art and career of perhaps the apex of Surrealist & and Visionary expression in the last century. As a collage artist and painter Jim has wandered the world in search of enlightenment and images. He is an “image archivist,” a self-defined profession which has produced fifteen major collections of engravings and rotogravures from the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries for Dover and several other publishers.
Bruce Rimell is a visionary artist based in Leeds-Bradford in the UK whose vibrant work springs from the alchemy of his own personal visions, sensations of archaeological or mythological prehistories, and migraine experiences since childhood. Rendered in a vivid style which as much recalls Aboriginal textures, Mayan codices and Minoan frescoes as it does graffiti art, psychedelic experience and surrealist forms, his art occupies a space somewhere between painting, drawing and illustration, and a time somewhere between the ancestral past and the shamanic future.
Mike Maki’s article, “I was born for these times” completes his tale begun in the 4th edition, where he penned “The Flowery Path: One Man’s Journey” in which he wrote about his involvement with Entheogens etc., which leads to this… Mike was arrested in 2011 for the sale of psilocybin bearing mushrooms. He is now in custody serving his sentence out in Federal Prison. This article goes deeper, much deeper.
Alan Piper’s “Gabriel Rossetti and the Secret History of Europe” talks about the connection of secret societies and the arts in early 19th century Europe. Alan’s examination of Gabriel Rossetti is well researched, and the net that he cast turns up all kinds of interesting information across a wide spectrum of disciplines. Alan joins us for this issue, and hopefully for more along the way!
From our featured artist Aloria Weaver & David Heskin we have a wonderful journey exploring their artistic partnership. As part of the Visionary School, Aloria & David express some of the finer modalities of the movement. Their use of colour and playfulness are very captivating. They are now involved with the founding of The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art!
Mike Hughes “Invocation of the Incisor Part 1. is the beginning of a series of tales he will bring to The Invisible College over the next few issues. There are two short stories in his first offering, and we think you will be delighted with his tales.
Nemo Bocko brings his unique art to this edition; exploring the occult & the erotic aspects of the visionary world. His take on art is in stark contrast to the mainstream of the visionary school, he brings humour, and hidden streams to the forefront.
We have another outing with Novalis, (Georg Philipp Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg) the German Hermeticist who died at an early age, but whose writings & poetry have inspired generations of hermeticist, and other seekers since his passing. We feature his “Hymns To The Night” in this edition.
Some of the Art for the 7th Edition! Lots more inside!
Beau Deeley explores the fractal universe in a very unique way, and Jim Harter brings us his superb collage works once more.
All in all, The Invisible College Magazine 7th Edition is an intense exploration of art, consciousness & poetry. A magazine for the cultural renaissance of our times.
