en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 09 Nov 2004
Every once in a great while an artist emerges who does more than simply reflect the social trends of the time. Such an artist is 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 that they have found that vision in the art of Alex Grey. Transfigurations, the follow-up to Grey’s Sacred Mirrors (1991)--one of the most successful art books of the 1990s--includes all of Grey’s major works completed in the following decade, including the masterful seven-paneled altarpiece Nature of Mind,called “the grand climax of Grey’s art” by Donald Kuspit. His portrayals of human beings blend anatomical exactitude with visionary depictions of universal life energy. Alex Grey’s striking artwork leads us on the soul’s journey from material world encasement to recovery of the divinely illuminated core.

Recenzii

"Grey’s vision of a flawed but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art.”
“Grey’s work, like all great transcendental art, is not merely symbolic or imaginary: it is a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being.”
“Alex Grey’s visionary art gives form to what shamans see only with the eyes of the Soul. His work opens portals that allow us to perceive the luminous nature of life and of all creation.”
"Alex Grey is making some of the most beautifully refined imagist work in the country today."
"A beautiful, unusual work."
"Grey brings us an ever-deepening visual contemplation on the nature of personal and transpersonal identity."
"Grey's portrayals of human beings blend scientific exactitude with visionary depictions of universal life energy. . . . a rare artist embraced by critics, spiritual leaders, and the general public during his lifetime. Grey's art leads us on a transformative journey through the darkness of the material world to the divinely illumined core. . . . an ever-deepening visual contemplation on the nature of personal and transpersonal identity."
"Alex Grey's art will bring you face to face with your soul and move you to a new level of enlightenment."
