Banyen's Description: 

Sacred Mirrors was the first large format book of Alex Grey’s visionary art—and it has blown many a good mind into great awe. This unique series of paintings takes the viewer on a graphic, visionary journey through the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual anatomy of the self. From anatomically correct rendering of the body systems, Grey moves to the spiritual/energetic systems with such images as “Universal Mind Lattice,” envisioning the sacred and esoteric symbolism of the body and the forces that define its living field of energy.

At a superorgasmic pitch of speed and bliss, we became individual fountains and drains of Light… After the experience of the Universal Mind Lattice, we decided that a vision of sacred interconnectedness was the most important subject of art. This book is a result of that decision.

Included are essays on the significance of Grey’s work by Ken Wilber, the eminent transpersonal psychologist, and by the noted
New York
art critic, Carlo McCormick. 

“Mr. Grey’s paintings, as detailed and anatomically accurate as medical illustrations, present man as an archetypal being struggling toward cosmic unity. Grey’s vision of a flawed but perfectable mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art.” —New York Times

Among Alex Grey’s other works are Transfigurations (the second large format volume of his paintings) and Sacred Mirrors Cards. He has also written a book called The Mission of Art.






Publisher’s Description: 

Grey’s art takes us through the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual anatomy of the self, revealing the core of human existence as he brings us face to face with ourselves.
