Orryelle Defenestrate – Bascule: DISTILLATIO

DISTILLATIO – Exhibition of original paintings and book-launch
June 25th-28th 2015

An Exhibition in London to celebrate the release of the final volume in Orryelle’s series of inter-connected Alchemical art books The Tela Quadrivium from UK esoteric art publishers Fulgur Limited, displaying original paintings from the book.

June 25th-28th 2015, at The Hundred Years Gallery
13 Pearson St. London E2 8JD

For eight years Orryelle worked only in black and white (with touches of gold and silver) for the previous volumes in the series (CONJUNCTIO 2008, COAGULA 2011, SOLVE 2012 -all sold out), but in the last few years he has been exploring the alchemy of Colour in diverse media for the culminating book DISTILLATIO.

Distillatio explores the Colour phase of Alchemy, the ‘Cauda Pavonis’ or Peacock’s Tail, and also the related Albedo or White phase. From this purified essence splits a vivid spectrum of colours. The originals presented in this exhibition explore the alchemy of colour in a diverse array of media, from semi-digital (incorporating photography by the artist) and gouache to large oils on canvas with gold, silver and copper leaf, also employing egg tempera for the Renaissance Misch – technique, including the artist’s own new spin on the method using peacock-egg tempera to literalise an alchemical symbol with potent results (above).

The various media have been applied with a diverse approach, ranging from figurative work in the rich Symbolist tradition to more contemporary expressionism and a post-modern collage approach. The exhibition will also feature the debut of Orryelle’s Alchmyic Chess Set – crafted of bronze and glass, this sculptural wonder brings some of the imagery from Distillatio into 3 dimensions. With Distillatio Orryelle affirms his position in the vanguard of the current resurgence in Esoteric Artists balanced between the conceptual and the aesthetic. Each volume of theseries connects into a multi-directional and spiraling narrative of images, symbols and text to form a greater whole which has now been distilled into completion.

As the culminating volume of the Tela Quadrivium, Distillatio provides the reader with the final pieces in an intricate esoteric puzzle, bringing together the book-web entire. A quarter of the works for Distillatio have already been sold to private collectors (one of the major canvases will be on display at this exhibition for the final time before going to its buyer) but the rest will be available for purchase, as well as some of the remaining drawings from previous volumes of the Tela Quadrivium, limited edition prints and of course the new book.

Uncanny Valley: Being Human in…

What are the invisible mechanisms of current forms of artificial intelligence (AI)? How is AI impacting our personal lives and socioeconomic spheres? How do we define intelligence? How do we envision the future of humanity? As technological innovation continues to shape our identities and societies, the question of what it means to be or remain human has become the subject of fervent debate. Taking advantage of the de Young museum's proximity to Silicon Valley, Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI arrives as the first major exhibition in the US to explore the relationship between humans and intelligent machines through an artistic lens.

Interviews | November 12, 2020

"More than a job, this is my purpose. Sensing, understanding, expressing are the guidelines that have led me to what you will witness in my artwork. As per my personality, my art is a stylistic fusion of encounters and opportunities. Starting with puntinism and arriving to Action Painting and Pouring Painting, I have found my "colourful" way of expressing myself. Passion, a desire to live render my artwork my presentation card. Every single brush stroke, chromatic flexion, line of colour exploded on the canvas, is a part of me." Read more


INTERVIEW: EVA MARC’H

Interviews | November 6, 2020

Eva Marc'h began painting at the age of 19 with no artistic training. Her very first paintings revealed the qualities of an inherent artistic gift, including perspective, depth, balance, and especially, color. Painting self-taught for ten years, she was free to explore her talent, allowing for only the expression of her unconscious to guide her many and varied creations. By 2000, she was inspired to participate in formal art study workshops at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, where she learned practice drawing and many other different techniques of painting to enhance her works.
