FAUSTUS CROW

My artwork and writing explores the realm of dreams, which has many layers; the first of which is a miasmic veil of surreal imagery, whose domain has inspired many a surrealist artist who have explored their own inner reality. When to go ever deeper, you then enter into more occult realms, which of symbolism has informed the magical arts. I do not see a division between the practices of art and sorcery, they are one and the same of practice, which can be termed as being shamanism.

The practice of art has since lost its connection with the inner reality the shaman to know. Yet, the creative processes and techniques employed by an artist and a shaman are none too dissimilar to each other. For example, both an artist and a shaman seek to hone their visualisation skills, as well as conjuring up visions, who to also create images or sculptured icons of meditative creativity, and likewise with that of an occultist, whose employed symbolism the surrealist and symbolist artists explored in their works.

Wherefore, In my works, I deconstruct the symbolism of the occult, which in the West in particular has an overriding focus upon the male principle, whose symbolic paradigm of God, angels and demons, etc, permeates all levels of Western culture, you could term as an ‘Animus’ fixation; hence I am otherwise exploring the rebellious symbolic expression of the feminine, ‘Anima.’

This also involves an anarchic imaginative deconstruction of various mythologies from around the globe, including folktales, fairy tales and even ribald nursery rhymes, etc;  these symbolic influences have greatly influenced our childhood and adult culture via the now popular genres of fantasy, sword and sorcery and science fiction, let alone that of urban legends and conspiracy theories, which I explore in my work, to further fuse with present, social, political and cultural issues.

My work also engages various influences, which are as diverse as the ninth-art of comics, Manga, Anime, video games, film and music, etc, which I then reproduce as familiar symbolic stimuli, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces.

Often these themes are erotic of nature, featuring fetish symbolism, which are then combined into photomontage works. The fetish symbolism of the hedonic is otherwise symbolically transmuted into the spiritual domain of the dream.

One example being, the fetish of the pony-girl, who is transmuted into a Succubus; her associated ‘Anima’ office is the inducement of Out Of Body Experiences; in other words, she enables the dreamer to ride her as his conjured Night-Mare.

My photomontage works also feature popular images from varying genres, which are juxtaposed with occult themes; these works are further embellished with arcane sigils, or otherwise created as computer generated imagery, which are used to illustrate what I write about.

The juxtaposition of popular imagery establishes a dream-like surreal quality, which suggests notions of a crossover into the dreaming domain of the occult, as well as formally unifying the disparate objects in each artwork into a whole. The employed sigils, are derived from the classical Grimoires, such as the Goetia in particular, which provide clues as to their content and further interpretation.

The photomontage works and computer generated imagery I sometimes translate into drawings or to use as colour studies for potential oil paintings. However, my preference is the traditional arts of drawing, painting as well as sculpture.

The usage of photomontage and computer generated imagery can be rather constrictive, which I to have primarily indulged in, so as to complete a project involving my writing, by a self determined date. The project has since been completed, which has led to my books.

While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is usually consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between my different projects they are linked by a recurring interest in the shamanic exploration of dreams, whether the subject matter involves fantasy or science fiction themes, etc.

For example, my artwork can be seen by the audience as being just a fantasy painting, but at another level it goes far deeper. However, I am aware that many in the audience find my interest in the occult to be rather disconcerting, if not quite mad, due their particular bias, whether it be religious or atheist of nature, who far prefer a strict division between fantasy and the occult realm of dreams. But should they look into the works of the surrealists or even many a comic artist they will find numerous artists who do not see a division between the two.

This does not mean that these artists are in anyway insane; they have just come to an objective observation that the nigh meditative process of creating a two-dimensional painting upon a cave wall of a canvas can become a three-dimensional interactive reality within a cavernous lucid dream, which can also lead to the observation of concordant synchronicities. Hence, deserving further artistic exploration, which can be termed as sorcery practice.

Wherefore, my sorcery practice of art will determine the materials and the forms of my work, which of an ongoing experiential reality since a child, involves the experience of inducing lucid dreams via my art, and the ensuing observation of synchronicities.

Each of my projects may consist of multiple works, often in a range of different media, which are grouped around specific themes and meanings. During the research phase and production, new areas of interest arise, leading to the next body of a Faustian work, which are inspired by my Succubae Muses, who I have conjured up within my lucid dreams via a Grimoire painting.

As the sorcerer adage goes: “you are only limited by the extent of your imagination.” I far prefer to let rip with my imagination, thinking outside of a ring-pass-not box!

NOTE: Should you be interested, my other website is a bit more interactive, which includes some associated flash games, of possible interest, along with videos etc.

    This is an answer to an individual going by the name of Amin Ra.

    I do not have any time for ‘Brand’ names of deities, or deified personages, which are used to sell a religious ‘Product’ of turbans, rusty nails and bits of wood.

    This is especially the case when the religion is the ‘appropriation’ of another people’s ‘Ancestral-Self-Identity,’ whose history is full of religious genocides in the name of their jealous deity, along with their own near extinction at the hand of copy-cat Cultists!

    What has been stolen has been systematically shoved down everyone’s throats, of a continued brainwash, as being a fascist truth, by Big-Business monotheistic Cults whose centralist politics desire a theocratic New World Order.

    The ‘mystery of existence’ cannot be ‘Branded,’ as a ‘Product’ by mere humans, such as by the pharaoh Akhenaten ranting on about his Cult deity of an Aten, the Cult priests of Amun Ra were pissed off at; they were all a bunch of inane brain-dead Lilliputian’s!

    The Channelled books of an ‘Animus’ God fixation has caused no end of slaughter behind the inane smiley faces of its Cultists, all of whom say they believe in love and peace, while collectively working towards bringing about a self-fulfilling prophecy of an End Of Days for all and sundry. The shitty thing is, these mind-control death Cults now have the necessary war toys to achieve their crap!

    They’re like a bunch of automatons acting out a script. The bloody facts of history, along with the present horrors, shows the ‘real truth’ behind their lies, for all to see!

    Those who continually war over their religious ‘Brands’ as being the one and only Truth, are totally insane.

    What pisses me off, I’m just talking about exploring ones own mind; then someone turfs up saying I should convert to some shitty ‘Brand’ of an Oily Big-Business Cult, thinking him/herself to be some self-proclaimed saint. Probably he/she thinks they are acquiring brownie points to get into their heaven, for converting souls into Cult minions. They sound far more like a brainwashing BORG to me!

    Your Cult and that of its competing Cult has appropriated the Ancestral-Self-Identity of another people’s Cult. All three of which have never paid their taxes since the time of Babylon, let alone Sumeria. Apart from fleecing everyone else of their shekels, since your ‘Product’ of a human made, three-faced Animus deity can’t survive without money; for without the shekels, who is going to pay for its numerous legions of brainwashing priests, let alone build its lavish Big-Business Cult temples of NWO Companies!

    I do not have any interest in any organised Cult of a Big-Business religion, which seeks to ‘Brand’ reality with its human made ‘Product.’ Whereas spirituality of a nigh abstract term, is an entirely different matter concerning self-exploration, which I do so through the practice of Art.

    So, if you desire to acquire your heavenly brownie points, please make your speedy way to your so called holy land where your BORG competitors forever war. I’m sure you will be ‘right’ at home there amidst the End of Days slaughter, being ushered in by your Triad of fellow automatons around the Ziggurat of UR; even though of different Cult ‘Brands,’ you all follow the same Trinity script of an Illuminati… Program!

    Don’t worry, you are not alone, there are many other ‘Numbered’ automatons around like yourself, who will soon be ‘Chipped’ up; this is due to your holy water being Fluoridated with a known neurotoxin, whose mutagenic compound has also poisoned your communion wafers as well as the halal meat and accompanying vegetables.

    The Big-Business Cults require a captured audience of ‘Branded’ brain-dead Sheep, along with dosing up the Lambs and ensuing generations, so as to keep their NWO religious ‘Products’ rolling on. The Big-Business Cults greatly fear you waking up; for should you do so, you will most assuredly rebel against their symbolic Matrix!

    Overall, as Leonard Nimoy would say, via Humanist Spock, “Live Long and Prosper;” whose Merkabah of a Starship Enterprise was launched at a hand-sign ‘Shin’ time, when many rebelled, who once sung the Mantra, “Make Love Not War.”

    This is an answer to an individual, who calls ‘it’ self, ‘Anonymous.’ Said individual is somewhat unaware that ‘it’ is not so Anonymous as ‘it’ thinks, since WordPress has a Security Measure, which logs the details of the Commentator, in order to negate Trolls.

    Most of the Ancestral-Self-Identity of pre-Christian Europe was passed down the female line, which was especially the case in Northern Europe; wherefore you have the Eddas, which means, ‘Grandmother’s.’

    Hence the reason why the Holy Inquisition of Rome targeted women during the medieval Holocaust of the Witch burning era, which lasted for approximately 500yrs of totalitarian theocratic rule.

    The Witch burning era was of similarity to the present theocratic ISIL rule over parts of the Middle East, whose followers are presently destroying the Ancestral-Self-Identity of other people’s lands, not belonging to them, in order to rewrite history in their ideological image.

    “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell, 1984

    Hence, not much has survived of the pre-Christian Ancestral-Self-identity of Europe; what little that has survived was recorded by biased Christian scholars, who used it for negative propaganda purposes.

    Other sources being that of present day archaeology.

    Witchcraft came to the fore during the late twentieth century, after two world wars, which is a mash-up of varying influences; it is a modern attempt to regain what has been lost, when Christian Rome forced the populace of Europe to convert to the appropriated Ancestral-Self-Identity of the Hebrew’s.

    You now have a situation where many a non-Hebrew claims to be of the lost tribe of Israel, who name their children after characters in the Torah; whereupon, those individuals who wake up to the fact that their indoctrination into a religion, which is the Ancestral-Self-Identity of another people’s, invariably leads them to seek out their own Ancestral-Self-Identity.

    Alas, the Ancestral-Self-Identity of Europe had been eradicated long ago by the Church of Rome’s Empire; this led to the eventual reactive creation of the Witchcraft movement, or otherwise called Wicca, whose popularity arose during the Vietnam war, when European Hippies sought an alternative spiritual paradigm of their own.

    Witchcraft is classified as being a religion by many of of its dis-enchanted Christian followers, so that their Newage temples can be Tax exempt, just like many a Synagogue, Church and Mosque.

    I am not going to pigeonhole myself as being a Pagan, whose original terminology basically means, anyone outside of Rome’s precincts, nor am I a Heathen, which has a tendency to be none too dissimilar to Christianity of temperament, along with being somewhat White Supremacist, when aligned with Nationalistic tendencies.

    I am not a follower of any religion, apart from having an interest in investigating their myths; this also includes Atheism, which is also a religious perspective. Nor am I a Satanist, Luciferian, Mason, Templar or one of the Illuminati, whose shared symbolism is Judaeo-Christian.

    I am however, a practitioner of Shamanism, which is ‘Not’ a religion, since it has no centralised dogma or singular philosophy entwined with temporal politics.

    Shamanism is essentially a system of consciousness transformation techniques, practiced by many ancient people’s across the globe, which enables a practitioner to affect his/her own consciousness to become aware of a greater reality.

    Whatever the practitioners use of a cultural symbol system is personal to them of beliefs; although beliefs can become a limitation; this is more so the case when they are cultural constructs.

    Wherefore, the Horned Shaman was demonised as the Devil/Satan/Lucifer by the early Christians.

    As for beliefs, I concur with the philosopher Robert Anton Wilson, who once said: “I do not believe in anything; but I have my suspicions.”

    In other words, I speak of personal experiences, rather than beliefs, concerning the material I illustrate and write about.

    Should I cover the beliefs of various cultures; whether they be ancient or modern, I do so out of an artistic interest in mythology, folklore and popular culture.
