Life has been crazy since Tessa McCaide moved to Texas. She’s gone from being a normal-ish girl with visions to a super-powered werewolf. She’s fought off vampires and broken a nearly unbreakable curse. And she’s got a hot mate, Dastien Laurent, to keep her busy.  Things are looking up until the full moon ceremony rolls around. Before Tessa can strengthen her bond with Dastien, the local coven crashes the gates, demanding that Tessa—their heir apparent—be returned. If the pack wants to avoid a war with the witches, handing Tessa over is the only option.  Tessa doesn’t want to cause an all-out fight, but joining a dark-magic coven isn’t on her to-do list, especially if embracing her magic side means parting with Dastien. When the coven leader tries to control Tessa with dark-magic, Tessa realizes she has to dismantle the coven or prepare the pack for war. Either choice will change her life—and her world—forever.

The aftermath of last night’s full Full Moon Tea ceremony. The Tea room was filled with such beautiful new friends.

My Altar for tonight’s esbat- a work in progress, really. I haven’t been practicing for very long and so a lot of these are handmade/representations that will have to do until I have some more money to spend. 

Top L and R: Goddess and God representations, crude drawings as my artistic ability is on par with a fourth grader’s. 

Left side: Goddess side. Besom, shell, cauldron, oils, and supplies for some spell work tonight (prosperity spells for job interview success). 

Right side: God side. Incense, “athame and bolene” (kitchen knives- ha), food and other supplies. 

Pentacle near center of water and salt bowls- handmade. Again, my artistic ability is very poor, but so is my bank account. 

Let me know what you guys think, I’d love to see your altars!

I originally chose this artwork to analyse because it was my favourite of those exhibited but I soon chose a different piece with more information available.
Nevertheless I have still included what I did come up with for this work.

STRUCTURAL FRAME

  • This artwork, “Kulama,” was made in 2015 with ochre on linen and has a chalky materiality
  • The large concentric circles represent the shape of the yam, the full moon or a ceremony’s dancing ground

SUBJECTIVE FRAME

  • Eyes of the viewer are drawn in through the circles to the centre

CULTURAL FRAME

  • The painting is a representation of the Tiwi Islander traditional ceremony Kulama which celebrates life as young men become adults

POSTMODERN FRAME

  • Representing the Kulama ceremony has been the inspiration behind a whole series of artworks so each artwork becomes an appropriation of the previous and so continues to keep the tradition of the ceremony alive

ARTIST PRACTICE

CONCEPTUAL PRACTICE

Cook’s recent works have been described as having, “an almost unwavering focus on the Kulama ceremony”. This link of the artist’s traditions and culture is made to the audience through the artwork. MCA quoted that, “Cook keeps memories of the Kulama ceremony alive through the vitality of his art,” and Cook said, “its all in the painting, so it passes onto the next one.”

MATERIAL PRACTICE

-Ochre on linen

-Chalky materiality
