“Painters, photographers, artists and performers participating in the group show believe that art based on the esoteric is becoming more important. The I:MAGE exhibition, held by Fulgur Esoterica of London until May 25 2013, is surrounded by special events that aim to reinforce the idea that we are seeing the consolidation of a movement, or at least one artistic sub-genre. www.20minutos.es
“In I:MAGE the occult factor is obviously brought to the foreground, with the intent to emphasize esoteric art as a category in its own right – in fact, as the key category from which the many and diverse visual outcomes can be appreciated. As Robert Ansell, curator of this exhibition and co-director of Abraxas journal for esoteric studies says: “Contemporary esoteric art has too often been subsumed into other categories. It has been considered post-symbolist art, art brut, surrealist art, outsider art, magic realism, neo-romanticism, or visionary art – to name a few. But while these categories are useful, they do not seem adequate to express the broad scope and inner complexities of this esoteric imagery.” Francesca Ricci – ArtLyst.com
I received a copy of Abraxas Journal #4 in the post today. Simply stunning. This is what magazines/journals should be. – Jason Pitzl-Waters, The Wild Hunt
