TREMENDOUS NEWS! S. Elizabeth publishes a book!

ART OF OCCULT

So proud of my ghoulfriend!

The Art of the Occult is a visual feast of eclectic artwork informed and inspired by spiritual beliefs, magical techniques, mythology and otherworldly experiences. 

Mystic and occult practices date back centuries, but why, after so much scientific progress, do we still chase the esoteric? Over the past two centuries, artists have been drawn to these unknown spheres and have created curious artworks that transcend time and place. From theosophy and kabbalah, to the zodiac and alchemy; spiritualism and ceremonial magic, to the elements and sacred geometryThe Art of the Occult will explore:

  • the symbolic and mythical images of the Pre-Raphaelites;
  • the automatic drawing of Hilma af Klint and Madge Gill;
  • Leonora Carrington‘s surrealist interpretation of myth, alchemy and kabbalah;
  • the theosophical practices of Mondrian and Kandinsky;
  • and contemporary tattoo artists inspired by sacred geometry.

Featuring prominent, marginalised and little-known artists, The Art of the Occultcrosses mystical spheres in a bid to inspire and delight. Divided into thematic chapters (The Cosmos, Higher Beings, Practitioners), the book acts as a light introduction to the art of mysticism – with short chapter introductions examining each practice, followed by a series of carefully curated artworks, supported by explanatory captions.The art of the occult has always existed in the margins but inspired the masses, and this book will spark curiosity in all fans of magic, mysticism and the mysterious.
