This is the third volume in the ground-breaking Tela Quadrivium Series.
In describing this new work Orryelle says, ‘Solve dis-solves the gold distilled in Coagula, tears apart our egos, dismembers our bodies and hurls any conceptions of perfection back into the primal void. Herein lies death, destruction, and the Prima Materia, the base matter, the Al Khem – the fertile black soil of decomposing forms, the compost for new growth. In an exploration of the Nigredo or Blackening phase of Alchemy, the concepts of Black Magic are re-examined in this ThanatErotic tome of the backward winding path; from the darkness of the womb to the darkness of the tomb…’ In preparing this dark vision, the artist has broken new ground with a series of extraordinary images executed on black paper. We think it some of his best work to date.
