PYRA

Visual artist, writer, chaos magician and curator of the Gallery.

Specializing in studies of the esoteric, Jungian and bizarre as surfacing through psychic automatism -or, unconscious materializations and their essence.

PSYCHIC AUTOMATISM

The technique of automatism in art and writing is to engage in a waking dream. The artist - in this context, the Medium - forgoes control as they are induced deeper into a state of trance which overrides conscious will or intent. 

This methodology has not only produced insight into the potency of subconscious influence on subjective and objective reality as affecting the individual, but has extended to reveal astonishing details that resonate with the collective unconscious - suggesting 'psychic' awareness that may otherwise be suppressed by the conditions of waking routine and expectation. 

THE JACKALOPE GALLERY

Here we endeavor to 'pierce the veil' that has segregated experience of mind from materia and materia from the unexplainable, by examining and producing phenomena adhering to the liminal state.

Automatism sessions are conducted by varying degrees -mild to intense- of sensory deprivation, isolation and creative instinct as governed by factors 'beyond conscious comprehension', at times supplemented by outside contributors depending on the subject or objective. 

All series, studies and investigations we believe to be a provocative portal into expanded awareness about the nature of personal and collective experience, what lies beneath the surface of consciously accepted motivations, conclusions and chance manifestations.. we challenge the narrative of 'coincidence' in favour of the mysterious and hidden.
