An explanation of the atavistic monstrosistic metaphystic mephistic mystic schtick…


“Do you see those flowers growing on the sides of the abyss whose beauty is so deadly and whose scent is so disturbing? Beware…” – de Guatia


Syncretism [sing-kri-tiz-uh m, sin-], noun: 1. The attempted reconciliation or union of different or opposing principles, practices, or parties, as in philosophy or religion.


All ideas have an image. We were originally an hieroglyphic species, before the restrictive linguistic and alphabetical systems we use now were adopted. We relate to our ‘reality’ through evolving media, the cycle an infinified re-alignment of schema to overcome reactive forces. If we are honest we must admit we do not invariably construct our own thoughts. The universe may be a creative process carried on by our imagination, but it is recursive and repetitive, sense data interpreted along symbolic lines remodelled over and over, and often well beyond our control. An authentic experience is therefore one that can convincingly represent a break in the cycle; therefore the artist’s role is that of the shaman and psychopomp.


“If you see a cliff, jump off…” – Old TOPY proverb… Time to wake up now and say goodbye. Poor Tom shall lead thee.


This is an accumulation of years of sensory overload: films, music, books, graphic novels, tattoos, photographs, paintings and the sewage-treatment plant that is the internet. Invariably, the images are symbolic compositions that represent a process of self-medication or therapy. Hours hunched over the paper with a micro-point ink pen are tunc absens animo. It is hardly a conscious process, more often just sporadic flickers: unexpected while grappling with ‘-isms’, floating in light, getting galactic on the great plains of planes. They’re the product of too much time in books about the vastness, of trying to see all from the nearest cosmic neighbour, warping along the undulation of ambient dub, heavy-psych and vacuum-cleaner recordings…

...old fillings in her teeth began to bother her. She would spend nights staring at a ceiling lit by the pink glow of San Narciso's sky. Other night she could sleep for eighteen drugged hours and wake, enervated, hardly able to stand...

...we of all magical precipitates out of Europe's groaning, clouded alembic, we are the thinest, the most dangerous, the handiest to secular uses... we tried to exterminate our Indians, like you: we wanted the closed white version of reality we got- but even into the smokiest labyrinths, the furthest stacked density of midday balcony or courtyard and gate, the land has never let us forget...

...look out the window, and doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat... and then later that night, you were lying, looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself, 'why is it that the landscape is moving, but the boat is still?'...

...Sometimes at dusk, when you were trying to relax and not think of the general stagnation, the Garbage God would gather a handful of those choked-off morning hopes and dangle them somewhere just out of reach; they would hang in the breeze and make a sound like delicate glass bells, reminding you of something you never quite got hold of, and never would. It was a maddening image, and the only way to whip it was to hang on until dusk and banish the ghosts with rum...

...In this conception of consciously formed reality finite limits on the nature of our schema halt the further assimilation of external stimulus. Thus all subjective representations of the objective universe can only ever go part of the way to attaining a true tautology of semblance. In a universe of varying types of consciousness, as evolved in the various central nervous systems on this planet, this problem of semblance can be some way overcome. Distinct consciousnesses will form different schema to represent the same stimulus...

...Life has no genuine intrinsic worth, but is kept in motion merely by want and illusion...
