When someone you love is drifting away, do you let go or make a strong play? Upon the advice of Mama Witch, G the Incognito Witch reaches out to a loved one struggling with mental illness. Music by Ginger Anxiety. Incognito Witch inspired by Artwork by Mollie Kellogg.
Creative Sorceress Mollie Kellogg conjures a magickal world through canvas, film, music and dance. Her award-winning Incognito Witch Project celebrates hidden magick. Mollie’s fine art has sold internationally and galleried in NY, NM, CA, WA, WY, AL, AZ, and was included in the 2015 Grammy® Gift Bag. Mollie presented her inner magick message at Talks in NY at the activist ArtRage Gallery, and in CA and AZ. Kellogg’s films have screened in NY, FL, MN, and CA at Heal One World’s Awareness Festival; internationally in Indonesia; schools in India; and received the Nine Worlds London LGBTQAI Track Award.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Incognito Witch works reveal the subject’s hidden psyche, suppressed to meet society’s expectations. Mortals become magickal beings draped in mysterious fabrics, adorned with jewels and leaves, wearing messy makeup with a signature flash of color under the eyes. These figures evoke a Mother Nature archetype of power, strength, attraction, empathy and vulnerability.
I began the Project celebrating hidden magick in 2009, with a series of “Inner Portrait” mixed-media paintings. G the Incognito Witch was introduced in 2010 in the first of many short films, dance and music videos. In 2014, my film character, Ginger Anxiety, became the first “Selfie” portrait.
I see my art as a way to promote self-acceptance, laughter, play, healing, community and personal possibility. The inner magick message resonates with like-minded individuals, participants, and organizations that support a mission to change the world through art. “Dancing in music videos is not something that people who look like me do. Being an Incognito Witch Dancer helped me break down personal barriers, and helped me realize we are all vulnerable and need friends and community to support us.” – Incognito Patricia, Phoenix, AZ. Creation of unique work with a message — combined with lived, felt, reported impact — moves me deeply and moves me forward.
