darcilio lima


Just discovered Darcilio Lima, his stuff is really fucking amazing.

“The divinatory power of this androgynous being is more than just anticipating the future. It is as if to “say” could provoke the destiny, produce the event itself. This may be one of the essential qualities that the monstrous fairy shares with the artist himself. For Lima to draw is to trace a sacred space — to avoid being devoured? —, to ward off the invisible. His gesture of disseminating hermetic symbols by association becomes an operative phenomenon similar to geomancy, his way of accomplishing a process the aim of which is the transmutation of his own self.” excepted from “Darcílio Lima’s Opus Magnum” by Barbara Safarova
