In the 1950s Rosaleen Norton was popularly known in Australia as the 'Witch of Kings Cross' -- a colourful, bohemian figure from Sidney's red light district. A natural trance artist, she experimented with self-hypnosis and as a result of her visionary explorations portrayed a wide range of supernatural beings in her paintings and drawings. Her 'pagan' art plunged her into continuous controversy and was the focus of obscenity trials. Her visionary drawings can be compared with those of English trance artist Austin Osman Spare. This is the first account of her life as a whole and looks both at her magical beliefs and her art and includes a fascinating selection of previously unpublished material.
