Artistic Visionary and Guide Rosaleen Norton


Known in the scandal press of 1950s Australia as 'The Witch of Kings Cross' Rosaleen Norton (1917-1979) was an artist, occultist and cultural revolutionary. According to her later biographer, Nevill Drury, "Norton's esoteric beliefs, cosmology and visionary art are all closely intertwined – and reflect her unique approach to the magical universe." She was inspired by "the 'night' side of magic", emphasising darkness and studying the Qliphoth, alongside forms of sex magic which she had learned from the writings of English occultist Aleister Crowley. A new documentary about Rosaleen Norton is being made. Here is a snippet of it:
