Alex Grey Beyond Art

Alex Grey art Interbeing Psychedelic or visionary art is fascinating, lets take a look at Alex Grey who portrays multiple dimensions of reality in his artwork.

Alex blends the human body, mind, soul with the universe and cosmic energy to create a reality of divine auras. Sacred Mirrors

One of his well known creation is the Sacred Mirrors, which is a series of 21 life-size framed images – 19 paintings and 2 etched mirrors – that examines, in detail, the anatomy of the body, mind and spirit. Its created in a sense to invite viewers to mirror one’s own sacred dimension through the artwork, understand and appreciate one’s unity with other people, cultures (irrespective of the colour, caste, creed), the universe and earth.

The images show progression from the material world to the spiritual world, describing a process of transformation from body awareness through sociopolitical awareness to spiritual awareness. Sacred Mirrors can be used as a tool to heal parts of the physical and subtle bodies.

The LSD Molecule, Dr Hofmann and Alex Grey

This is a small excerpt taken from Alex Grey site, Dr. Hofmann first synthesized the compound LSD in 1938, while researching ergot derivatives as a chemist for Sandoz Pharmaceuticals in Basel.”
Albert Hoffman LSD revelation by Alex Grey “The substance was tested on lab animals with no interesting results, so like hundreds of similar test compounds, investigation of this drug was abandoned.

Yet, in 1943, at the horrific height of WWII and shortly after Fermi makes his discovery that led to the atomic bomb, Hofmann had a “peculiar presentiment” to re-synthesize LSD.

He has said that never before or since had he any similar “presentiment.” In my portrait of Dr. Hofmann an alchemical angel’s tears drip down to anoint or “create” the LSD molecule. The LSD Molecule, Dr. Hofmann & Alex Grey
