"The artist as a practitioner of witchcraft.. to me are the artists who were effective at bringing change unto the world.  Darcilio Lima (1944 - 1991) for instance, is a Brazilian artist I have interest in. He considered his works as spells for protection against malevolent forces, and gifted that protection to the person who would acquire that work and live with it. This is the true magic."
