Abracadabra began its life listening to Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks. There’s a line “I if I should venture into the slipstream, between the viaducts of your dreams” that kept going round in my head .. since most of my works are either dreamscapes or informed by trance like or meditative states, this line spoke to me of the space between conscious and unconscious  .. the void where much may be “dreamed up” or manifested … perspectives may be changed or transformed, and healing can occur.   I’m curious about all kinds of spiritual paths, and one that I’ve been learning about is witchcraft (there is an re-emergence of interest all over the world into pagan practices and rituals). It was hearing an interview with Damien Echolls, one of the Alabama Three, who escaped death row after 16 years in prison having been falsely accused and convicted of murder, who studied Buddhism and Magick whilst he was incarcerated, that got me interested.  I’d always been afraid of those kinds of things but as I read more about it, I realise it’s just another way of communing with nature – a kind of Celtic paganism if you like.  I have found myself painting more and more about nature, and our sacred connection to it, which we all know is under terrible threat.  I work to express warnings and grief for what’s been lost already but also light and hope, since I believe we do indeed have the power if only we can unite in a vision. For that we may well need some powerful magick … Abracadabra.
