Every once in a great while an artist emerges who does more than simply reflect the social trends of the time.
These artists are able to transcend established thinking and help us redefine ourselves and our world.
Today a growing number of art critics philosophers and spiritual seekers believe they have found that vision in the art of Alex Grey.
TRANSFIGURATIONS is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Sacred Mirrors one of the most successful art books of the 1990s.
It includes all of Grey's major works completed in the past decade including the masterful seven-panelled altarpiece Nature of Mind called the grand climax of Grey's art by Donald Kuspit.
Grey's portrayals of human beings blend scientific exactitude with visionary depictions of universal life energy leading us on the soul's journey from material world encasement to recovery of our divinely illuminated core. * Includes a foreword by Albert Hoffmann and essays on Grey's work by renowned art critic Donald Kuspit, philosopher Ken Wilber, and Stephen Larsen, author of Joseph Campbell: A Fire in the Mind
