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.

Sat 27th June: PERFORMANCE NIGHT featuring new ritual music (violin, voice, loop pedals) and dance by Orryelle related to the work; with accompaniment from Akoustic Timbre Frekuency (percussion and singing bowls) and the ritual use of Orryelle’s new Alchymic chess set.
