Autumn Twilight II by Tolkyes Autumn Twilight II by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas, 16"x20".
Autumn spirits gather along the ancient crannog at dusk.

Luminorphs (or 'spirits' as the locals call them) like to seek shelter amid ancient ruins along the lakes, streams and forests of the countryside.
They are attracted to light amid the darkness such as the phosphorescent fungi and the fire.

Thanks. I've had several people tell me that my imagery reminds them of H.P. Lovecraft.

Do you use the Mische Technique? Nice work.

Thank you! I don't know what the Mische Technique is so I looked it up.

No, I don't paint in that manner. Just regular oil on canvas.

A magical scene...one can see why the locals would think of them as spirits, as well as why they are something more than just shades of the dead...

Your artwork is amazing. Where do you get the inspiration for those luminorphs??? Please tell! :D

Thank you!
Since college I've always liked to draw and paint spontaneous organic forms. In surrealism this is known as 'biomorphism'.
Years later I began to formulate a story or sort of mythology linking my surreal/fantasy landscapes together. I started to think of my biomorphic forms within these landscapes as trans-dimensional beings of some kind and started calling them 'luminorphs'.

Also, I like the ghostly and other-worldly quality of glowing multicolored organic forms that actually exist in our 3 dimensional reality: unusual deep sea creatures like jellyfish, luminescent fungi and nebulae. I've gradually combined these shapes with my own biomorphic imagery in varying degrees to create more luminorphs.
