Imbolc is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring held on February 1 – 2 and dedicated to Brigid, the Pan-Celtic Fire Goddess of Healing and Inspiration, and one of the Matron Saints of Ireland.
The Celtic year was divided into two halves, the dark and the light. Samhain was the beginning of the dark half, with its counterpart, Beltane beginning the light half. Between these two ‘doors’ or portals fell Lughnasadh or Lammas, celebrated on August 1, and Imbolc, on February 1, quartering the Celtic year.
“While winter is still going strong, there are signs that spring is on its way… The livestock begin to give birth and there is a promise for the future… Since Brigid is the Goddess of Inspiration, [the gifts exchanged on this day] may be a poem or song, rather than a material item…”

The artwork of Æres is the by-product of the internal communication with his sub and unconscious. It serves as windows to the soul and true self by being active messages from this portion of consciousness that speak as Yantras; upon gazing one can be stirred and find meaning which was being communicated to him by his unconscious at the very moment of tapping in and visual translation.
Visionary states of consciousness, spontaneous gnosis and trance, the nuances of life and their depths, chi gong, martial arts, yoga, and the esoteric lore of the world are a few of the primary things that influence and serve as a driving force behind Æres’ artwork. Æres has also had the privilege of working with Alex and Allyson Grey at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors when it was in New York City, from 2006 to 2009, and has been heavily influenced by the energy and technique of the two masters and their sacred space. He produces his work with the intent that his art will prove useful to all who interact, as snap-shot termas.
Æres currently works with a variety of both traditional and digital media with a slight preference for the digital, and has breached into the sphere of video art work as well. He now spends his days working on his digital and traditional artwork while offering his Mind Altering Video Jockeying services to venues and rock bands. Preferring to be active in his efforts to raise the vibrations of the inner city and it’s plentiful denizens with the magic of collaboration, he endeavors to get his work interacting with the world on a higher basis.
