...this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain, thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw.

His works are like beautiful nightmares...I'm in love with his paintings and themes.

Christopher Ulrich is a painter of surreal, iconographic images. He is influenced by the richness of ancient mythology, the mystery of alchemy, and the vastness of cosmic reality. Illuminating this dark journey with insight, heart and determination he strives to understand the unraveling revelation that reveals itself in the work. Christopher began his exhibition life with the first of three major experiments, The Demoneater Series, which has been published as a prestige edition, hardcover book. Demoneater consists of 15 “Keys” to 15 “Doors.” These paintings all depict black, mirrored reflections of a single character. This alchemical allegory was first shown at the Bergamot Station on November the 2nd (Day of the Dead) 2007, exhibiting through January 2008. The series is being presented again at the Grand Central Art Center Museum at CSUF.

The Christ Chronocrater Series III:
The Reckoning marks the end of a six-year odyssey known as the Demoneater Saga. The works in The Reckoning are based on alchemy and personal allegory, and are composed according to the zodiac. Attendees of the art exhibition will notice the influence of late Gothic and Renaissance mannerisms with a pinch of Baroque added to the mixture.

I believe nature (which we're part of, of course) is art in itself so here goes an old video, I believe it was originally posted by Hex some time ago:

I would totally put that Walktopus in my front yard... the 5' version, of course-

When you can afford things like that, people are more likely to call you eccentric, instead of just weird-

Which would be fabulous, of course- :D

I'm sort of an amateur photographer, and I used to create pictures with pastels when I was younger. A major flood destroyed my basement a couple years ago, which housed all of my artwork, and I was so enraged that I haven't really been able to continue since, but I would like to pick it up again.

Anyway, here are some of my photos:

Please be gentle with the criticism, I did state that I was an AMATEUR.

I also like to write stories; I posted a piece of romantic Doctor Who fanfiction on the old boards (my date with David Tenant), but it's lost and gone forever now that Vigilant deleted it. :(

Believe me I know how devastating it can be to have a natural disaster demolish a prized picture...

Can you tell us a bit about the photos? Where is the one of the countryside? It looks like it has a storied past.

And I like the last one a lot. "Follow the path into the light."
