Art is the substance of life. One’s metaphysics manifests as values. Those values manifest as an aesthetic. This aesthetic governs one’s actions and manifests in one’s art. It is no coincidence that occultists tend to practice one or more arts.

“Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest.” – Nietzsche. The Birth of Tragedy.

On these pages you will find art that speaks to my values. Due to the nature of the medium, these will be primarily restricted to the written and visual arts. Poetry, Prose, Painting and the like from a variety of authors are listed below.
