“ORAKEL ROHBAU – Illustrations and Evocations by C. Ochs”

Exhibition November 2016

Alchemical rebus, demons and angels scattering breadcrumbs along the pathway and Abraxas-magic – Conny Ochs´ first exhibition of his illustrations „ORAKEL ROHBAU“ shows original drawings, screen-prints and collages of the musician and songwriter.

Ochs documents and illustrates his search for magic, truth, unknown territory and not least himself. Tours and various travels have brought him from Bologna through Seattle and to Tokyo. His illustrations are archaic, naive and always full of desire and longing.

In the tradition of psychedelic artists such as Rick Griffin and inspired by archaic symbolism sets of ritualistic formulas can be found the same as quotes from pop-culture. The images, often appearing to be evocations, are played out by brushes, pens, gold imprints and coal.

Since 2014 Halle/GER-born Ochs works with various artists, bands and theatre-projects on murals, vinyl- and CD-artworks and poster-designs. A selection of works can be seen on www.ochsworks.com.

“ORAKEL ROHBAU – Illustrations and Evocations by C. Ochs” will be shown at Coq d´Or, Olten/ Switzerland from November 2nd until November 28th.

MURALS in RITUAL MOOD!

Specially when you get the chance to help create a space for people to meet, to be inspired, to fly on crazy wings together and be REAL it all makes sense.

Yesterday evening in Cesena/Italy we celebrated the opening of Sara "Swati" Usberti´s Tattoo- & Piercing Joint "Ritual Mood". Two weeks ago i got the invitation to work on a mural for her still-to-be-born place, and it´s been four days of triping on drawing and music.

If you are in the area check out Sara´s place, specially if you´re looking for the unusual...

Be magical, be wild, be a friend.

Yours,
C

Days of Grace´s "LOGOS"

Knowing the band both artistically and personally for many years it was pure joy to work with them on the drawings for LOGOS, specially concerning the topic of sacred geometry their lyrical concept centers on.

This focus gave way to further expeditions into making accessible the unconscious, which more and more becomes the cornerstone for my travels, both graphically and musically.

Thumbnails contain Artwork detail.

The backside is featured on the inside print of the vinyl version and on the backside of the booklet included in the digipack version.

Walk right through.

P.S. The backdrop-photo was taken at DOG´s Releaseparty in Halle/Saale(GER) at Steintor Varieté on Sep 10th 2016.
