A magick circle refers to a sacred space created by practitioners of magick in which to perform rituals or invoke spirits. The circle holds energy and is also a protective barrier.
Whether or not one chooses to differentiate between black and white magick, one cannot deny the power of those black vinyl circles holding our favorite music.
Show runs 11 December 2021 - 2 January 2022.
Originally from Chicago, Jeff Finn is an experimental artist, writer, musician and filmmaker who finds continual inspiration in the art and lives of Hannah Hoch, Andy Warhol, Maila Nurmi, Joseph Cornell, William S. Burroughs, David Lynch, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Winston Smith.
The author of the forthcoming novel, TH3 H0U53 0F 94U7, and the director of the independent documentary, Before the End: Searching for Jim Morrison, Finn also performs noise-based sound art under the alias, dbsR.
The La Matadora group show, Black Magick Circles, marks the second public exhibition of Finn’s collage and assemblage work since 2002.
