Intersections of esotericism and visual art from Renaissance alchemy to Derek Jarman

Since Antiquity, the idea of the artist as a magician, trickster and powerful creator of new realities has established itself as a fertile idea in the discussion of image-making. The conjuring of illusions, the inherent link between the material and the spiritual, and the wish to make the invisible visible are all part of this wider discourse. Visions of Enchantment looks at the fascinating intersections between esotericism and visual culture through a decidedly cross-cultural lens, with topics ranging from talismanic magic and the Renaissance exploration of alchemy, through to the role of magic in modern art and 20th-century experimental film.

The essays in this volume have been selected from papers presented at a major international conference at the University of Cambridge in 2014. It presents work by some of the leading scholars in Western Esotericism, including Antoine Faivre, M.E. Warlick and Deanna Petherbridge. Visions of Enchantment attests to the vibrant role that magic and the occult play in cutting-edge research across a wide variety of the arts and humanities today.

Wonderful strange power in 'Visions of Enchantment: Occultism, Magic and Visual Culture'

Wonderful strange power in 'Visions of Enchantment: Occultism, Magic and Visual Culture'

Leonora Carrington’s 1937–8 “Self-Portrait, or The Inn of the Dawn Horse” is reproduced from Spring 2019 staff favorite, Visions of Enchantment from the fascinating new D.A.P. publisher, Fulgur Press. Exquisitely made, this oversized, generously illustrated volume gathers essays written for a major international conference on Western Esotericism. “I often feel like Joan of Arc so dreadfully misunderstood,” Carrington is quoted. “I often feel I am being burned at the stake just because I am different from everybody else because I have always refused to give up that wonderful strange power I have inside me and it becomes manifested when I am in harmonious communication with some other inspired being like myself.” continue to blog
