Pagan Eye: Supervision - Exhibition at Atlantis Bookshop

I went to see the art exhibition that's currently on in the underground temple at The Atlantis Bookshop in London, and I took this photo. The exhibition is called Supervision and displays  art by Cathy Ward. The description on Atlantis' website says:

"As though wafting silently and invisibly through the ether, the powers of todays surveillance state - or state of being – both protect and cause unfathomable harm. All-seeing eyes, sprites and spirits, demons and imps, agents provocateurs, the law. We/they can and do look back and to the future willingly or not as we live under various forms of surveillance and supervision.

"The centrepiece of this exhibition is a circular piece called SISTER MOON. As well as the Moon being the one, true, all-seeing eye of our Inner and Outer worlds, this reactor piece represents a focus on the energies we increasingly need to work with using mythical beliefs as Humankind is lost unless we call on a variety of supernatural powers to help us. Cathy Ward is showing 16 of her fine-line drawings of ‘vibrations and landscapes of consciousness’. and other work." 

Liberty Realm, the first critical monograph of Ward’s work was published by Strange Attractor in 2020 and is available to purchase. There are also other items of interest for sale, including a cloak from a Buffalo Bill Wild West show, 1930s' Skotographs made by Spiritualist Madge Donohoe, and a 100-year-old crystal knife. 

The Atlantis Bookshop is open Monday to Saturday at 49a Museum Street, London, WC1A 1LY. Visit the website for more details:
