“ Having rejected all else, these people had come here decades before and fashioned their homes from only that which the land provided, eschewing all forms of ‘civilization.’ Here were men and women colored as the very mantle of the earth - as soil and leaves, as wood and stone. Their visages and movements were contiguous with the land, to such a degree that even in relative close proximity, only the keenly discerning would know that that they were looking at people, and not a meadow or a ravine.”

 D. A. Schulke . The Green Mysteries


Benjamin A. Vierling (b.1974) is a California based painter & illustrator working in traditional media.

His work appears on numerous book and album covers, most notably: Bill Fay’s 2020 LP, Countless Branches, Joanna Newsom’s opus, Ys, and Daniel Schulke’s occult herbarium, The Green Mysteries.

Past exhibitions have taken place at the Strychnin Gallery in Berlin, the Roq La Rue Gallery, the Mortlake & Co. Gallery in Seattle, and the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. A Decennary Retrospective of Vierling’s work was held at Seattle’s Gage Academy of Art, in 2014.
