Esoteric Journey co-host Michael Wachter’s new website is live. I just ordered one of his prints. I had a hard time deciding between the light series or the dark. Both showcase a clean, crisp experiment in sigils, ink, fire, and silver augmentation. I am baffled by the level of detail Michael has taken with the crafting of ink and fire. Some of these processes took decades to perfect and he’s pouring them out now like hot butter.
“My name is Michael Wachter I am a welder/millwright and artist. My art gives to me a sense of experimentation and play that is not common in my heavily measured and precise trade. I get excited creating something novel, unseen, something with the potential to move the viewer into new territory. I am never really sure how my pieces will be perceived until they are completed and shared. There is a great joy in hearing how others interpret the work as everyone has a unique way of looking at it. The symmetrical nature of my current series helps the viewer personify the image as it takes on life-like qualities. I am always adding hidden meaning and symbology into my pieces as I believe mystery to be one of the greatest gifts of life. Thank you all for accompanying me on this journey of self-discovery, let me know what you see!”
