A virtual Gallery of EsotErotic Artwork by Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule
in the diverse media of pen and pencil, oil paints, egg tempera, gouache, clay, bronze, semi-digital and photography.

Orryelle's first Kickstarter Campaign is under-way, to fund a new esoterotic film based on the Metamorphic Ritual Theatre production 'Solve et Coagula', including the redesigning and reconstruction of his life-size composite kinetic Baphomet statue (left arm of the original version seen above)

SOLVE et COAGULA is about re-membering the body, reconnecting the mind-body-spirit split; an esoteric tale rooted in the ancient archetypes of Orpheus, Osiris and Dionysos, yet increasingly relevant in our age of virtualization, depersonalization and desensitization.

The 'esoteric' is inner as opposed to 'exoteric', so the title of this Gallery may seem contradictory as erotica is generally associated with the physical body and its sexual expressions. But Orryelle depicts more than just the outer forms in their interactions - hir images show the inner kundalini fire which inspires such activity, and the spirits and elemental phantasms which may emanate therefrom. This esoterotic Art is about the inter-play between the flesh and the spirit.

Because the Pen-is mightier than the sWord.

There is now also a new online gallery of Orryelle's alchemical artworks on Adam McLean's comprehensive Alchemy website HERE

Oils, egg tempera, gold leaf, blood, milk (cow & human)

This was the first print available of Orryelle's new Colour works.
A 30.5cm x 45.7cm (12" x18") high-quality giclee print on semigloss archival paper, which captures well the sheen of the gold leaf and varnish-heavy original.

Signed and numbered by the artist out of 77 copies only. Now available for $31 or equivalent in your currency.

The original large canvas (120cm x 79cm) featured in Fulgur's inaugural Esoteric Art exhibtion I:MAGE in London in May 2013.

"With the Milk of a Gazelle...' is an image for Distillatio (the White Book -final volume of the Tela Quadrivium bookweb, coming from Fulgur Limited in June 2015)

The Ancient Egyptian text 'The Contendings of Horus and Seth' (Papyrus Chester Beatty I) tells a strange tale of the healing of Hoor/Horus' eyes by Isis after His epic battle with Set (who is depicted in the corresponding pages of Solve tearing out Horus' left eye). Where lay Horus' sundered eyes, Lotuses grew from mounds in the earth, and on these fed a Gazelle.

Horus in His rage after battling Set, angered at Isis' compassion for His enemy, beheaded Her. However She immediately took the head of Hathor (His Lover, whereas Isis is His Mother), milked the Gazelle and with this healed Horus' eyes, which are traditionally associated with the Sun and the Moon, now blooming upon the crepuscular Horizon.

A tiny milky nerve-plexus lotus begins to grow in the back of His eye-socket, while a venomous scorpion echoes His own posture in the merging of apparent dualities with medicinal poisons. The swan-like Alchemical vessel with which She extracts the milk is echoed in the similarly semi-transparent segmented vessel of the scorpion's exoskeleton, through which runs a blood-red thread from sting-tail to red Set head.
Hathor (Hut-hoor) means House of Horus, ie. the Sky, and She holds His solar orb betwixt Her horns, rebirthing His vision.

The lunar ritual involved in the creation and consecration of this work is a prayer for the healing and transformation of the Warrior spirit, an aspect of human nature that must be channelled and focused for the most positive ends, rather than denied or suppressed.


Chthonia means not just of the Underworld, but emerging from it, between the realms, erupting to the surface...

The wax heads and torsos are reconstructed for each figure from the pieces which come out of silicon molds made from the original, but the skirts of each individual wax figure (to be lost in the bronze-casting process) are being individually crafted from wax, gnarled tree-roots, lace and lichen, so that each figure calcifies something of the earth forms and nature spirits from where it was created.

Right: Original carved and sculpted wax for the first Hekate, crafted in Castlemaine Australia and exhibited at the Hekate Symposium 2013 in Glastonbury UK.

Thus each figure is uniquely imbued with the Genius Loci or spirit of place where they were created. Those pictured below were made in Sintra, Portugal, with the skirts incorporating roots collected on the full moon from the Mountain of the Moon...

Edition of nine copies only (each unique).


Based loosely upon an illustration from the medieval Alchemical manuscript 'Rosarium Philosophorum', this image depicts the Alchymic siamese twins- Red King and White Queen -splitting back into individuation from their union. The Crac k of the Cosmic Egg becomes the lightning-flash from Kether to Malkuth as undifferentiated spirit returns to the world of form....
