Pimp My Artwork 083: The Tarot


Pimp My Artwork 082: Bloodlines

The Full Hunger Moon was coming and promises had been made. I created these crowns specifically for The Witches Compass circle that evening. I had about a week to prep and so I rummaged through my drawers for bits of birch bark, vintage coyote fur, chicken bones, twine, and twigs. The first crown took about two days as I was playing with the structure a bit. Because of the time frame I had to use every day materials. The beginning of the first crown looked like this.

As the night went on it turned into this.

I created the other three crown in a day and a half, mostly working on them in the evening and looking for new materials to make each one distinct.

I created Valentine's for the ritual.

As the ritual approached we set up. Set-up is a two person team consisting of me and Damon Stang.

On the floor we drew a labyrinth and within stations for the elements. As guests made their way through the labyrinth hearts were given, dances were danced until they all stood outside to take the minds journey. Sacraments were given and vows made. We turned them from human to beast until one, one was collared, chosen and brought to the stage. There we crowned him King, the collar came off and it was his turn to bless the vows on hearts with blood. (Yes, fake blood.) From one hand to another he took the hearts and blessed them, the drums played in the background, the energy pulsating and just like that the feast began. The Hunger Moon brought the uniting of crowns, royalty and bloodlines. The Leo moon brought awareness and pride. The room stood filled with bodies partaking in wine and conversation amidst candlelight and a labyrinth whose walls had been unlocked.

All hail the King of Wolves, the Queen of Wolves, King of Serpents, and Queen of Crows. All hail the forest groves, the roots beneath the muddy earth, the bloodlines undulating under a blanketed sheet of snow.

With crowns at Catland Books.


Killin' It 087: The Brothers Booth

I'm in a new play called The Brothers Booth. A strange thing happened after I got the role of tarot reader. Cynthia asked me if there was a particular name I wanted for my character and I told her I'd think on it. A name kept coming to me "Violet Lee." It repeated until I finally gave the name with a few added characters.

Later in conversation I mentioned the name to Sister Enable, my partner in London Conjure. Much to my surprise she said, "Well that's interesting. She was my great Aunt. She used to read tarot and fortunes by the shore." And so Violet was reborn onto the stage and across the pond.

Directed by Wes Grantom, the production will be presented on the first Saturday of the month at The Players Club. Performances will be held March 1, April 5 and May 3 at 8 PM. 

Speakeasy Dollhouse: The Brothers Booth is set in 1919 in The Players Club — the former home of Edwin Booth — and features actors portraying John Drew (then-president of the Players Club) and John Singer Sargeant, as well as the ghosts of Edwin and John Wilkes Booth. The production also includes live jazz, moonshine and burlesque.

"Speakeasy Dollhouse: The Brothers Booth brings von Buhler's unique brand of immersive theater to the legends of John Wilkes and Edwin Booth," press notes state. "Speakeasy Dollhouse: The Brothers Booth is an immersive time-traveling theatrical experience, set in the renowned Players Club, which explores the sibling rivalry between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth."

Dreams Are Real 047: 2013 - Absinthe Soda

Photo by Shahriar Shadab

"After the first glass you see things as you wish they were.
After the second, you see things as they are not.
Finally you see things as they really are,
and that is the most horrible thing in the world."- Oscar Wilde

2013 rolled in with promises of fresh start and delivered with a great big blow to the perceptions of illusion and reality. I called it absinthe soda.  The Oscar Wilde quote summed it up but as the days turned to nights and hours into months, the horror turned to beauty and the great mysteries of the year unfolded. It seemed to be a year of open homes, wounds, and new ventures. It started and ended in the same physical space. There is a saying that whoever you spend your time with or whatever you end up doing on New Years will give insight to the outcome of the year to come. I believe this to be true and spend the night in the company of close friends sprawled on a canopy bed drinking champagne and recounting stories.

Summing Up 2013:

I was written up in The Guardian, NY Times, Hi-Fructose, Run Riot, Luna Luna, Digital Journal and did a panel on independent publishining for Bedford and Bowery and guest hosted Comic News Insider. I was featured in Force Field Fotocomix 01 by Seth Kushner, traveled to Chicago and did a tarot class at Madame Zuzu's. I had shows in Last Rites, Sacred Gallery, Skylight Gallery, Local Project, and Madame Zuzu's. I did the album cover for The Cold & Lovely, shot their music video, and my own video vignettes were featured as backdrops for their tour. I also did production design for Natti Vogel's "Cannibal video which was featured on Mtv Hive. Speakeasy Dollhouse got rave reviews this year as well and so it goes on another year. I also did a Speakeasy Dollhouse themed Dr. Sketchy's before it waved goodbye to it's NY chapter. After a trip to New Orleans I came back refreshed and Sister Enable and I started London Conjure. I also joined with Damon Stang to bring you "The Witches' Compass" at Catland Books.

2013 brought some sad news as well. My dear friend Taylor Mead passed away and forever took a piece of my heart with him. You were a brutal year 13, but necessary and I'm looking forward to all that 2014 has to offer.
