Hieroglyph of the Human Soul

A Conversation with Leigh McCloskey, Christopher McIntosh, and Arthur Versluis

Leigh McCloskey is an artist, philosopher, and actor whose art manifests Hermetic and alchemical themes, especially in his work The Hieroglyph of the Human Soul, an installation in his personal library. Some of his paintings are featured in this remarkable conversation with Christopher McIntosh and Arthur Versluis, in which they discuss such themes as the meaning of creativity, the nature of art as esoteric or spiritual transmission, and the context of contemporary technological society. Below is a selection of Leigh’s art, some of which is also integrated into the video.
