ART OF THE MYSTIC - INTRO REVISITED 🎨

11 months ago

Almost a year ago when I first joined WEKU I wrote a introduction ABOUT MY WORK - THE MYSTIC ARTIST that I linked to in subsequent posts. Alas, when I checked back on it I find that many of the images shown had been "lost" from the server. I guess it may have had something to do with some rough patches WEKU went through those days.
Thus I decided to redo some of that blog, as well as update it, in order to link to it in future posts.
A year earlier, I had written a similar intro on Steemit, and I am using portions of it in this blog.

So here it goes, my "new and improved"

INTRODUCTION

I like to introduce myself with this, one of my most ambitious drawings from 2017:

graphite on paper, 120 x 100 cm - 2017


My name is Otto Rapp, and I have been around this mortal coil for quite some time now, since 1944 to be exact.
A detailed Introduction is found on my website: Art of the Mystic - Introduction

ABOUT MY WORK

"These are universal archetypes that may be found deep inside our collective subconscious. While seemingly extraterrestrial and alien, they are also strangely familiar. I take the viewer into an area that they might have been before in another existence or have entered in their dreams. It is a 'method in this madness' but everything arises by elimination of conscious guidance. The work grows seemingly by itself, like frost flowers on a windowpane. "

I deliberately posted most paintings from my early career, works that you may not readily find on my website. This gives you a good overview how it all started. A lot of my older work can also be found on DeviantArt: ArtOfTheMystic


Aside from Paintings, my forte is actually drawing, such as this one:

ALPHA AND OMEGA - THE RECONSTRUCTION OF BOGOMIL'S UNIVERSE - 1200.jpg

At times when I feel playful, I use my designs, or details of my designs, to create some digital work:
FOMORII INCUBATOR 2 boardflpPLAY2A1100.jpg
Fomorii Incubator - digital adaption from one of my drawings.

Much of my digital work is specifically created for my fashion designs..............

such as this one:

Untitled-1 friedrich-2.jpg

which is derived from this painting:

Amazing art work.

A very good and beautiful painting, whether it's a masterpiece @artofthemystic.

Great stuff!!! Your work reminds me of Heinrich Kley (my favorite artist). Unfortunately, he died the day I was born.

Welcome back. Your more mystical work short circuits my brain at times, but then I am far too logical.
