Supernatural art and occult art expressed in the work by Minneapolis visual artist Roger Williamson.
Williamson’s paintings focus towards metaphysical and symbolic occult themes that build upon classical myths and ancient themes. They invite viewers into spheres of consciousness characterized by ethereal portraits and kaleidoscopic color palettes presenting a sweeping panorama of preternatural imagery.
Aspiring to reintroduce mystery and ambiguity back into the adventure of human existence through the creative process, encouraging artistic audiences towards “living effulgent and invigorating lives, revitalized from the secretions of our subconscious.”
Born in Loughborough, England, in 1947 and then growing up in Coventry Williamson was inspired from an early age by the French Symbolist painters of late nineteenth century France,
It is these artistic influences, in conjunction with his own esoteric upbringing and practical experiences of mythology and dream control, that form the matrix, a collective oeuvre upon which his paintings and writings are an extension.
Using diverse creative media, whether painting or writing books, Williamson endeavors to develop techniques that materialize the sensuous dreaming experience into the language of the waking world.
