Banyen's Description: 

 Since early humans first painted from their mystic eye onto cave walls, artists have sought to share their visions with the world. Created in every medium, from oil painting and sculpture to contemporary digital modeling, these visionary works of art give those who experience them a chance to see the unseen, realize wider modes of perception, and discover spiritual and mystical realms.

This gorgeous full-colour tribute examines the work and inspirations of eighteen of today’s leading female visionary artists, including Josephine Wall, Allyson Grey, Amanda Sage, Martina Hoffmann, Penny Slinger, and Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, among others. They explore the creative process and the role that dreaming, psychedelic experiences, sexuality, and divine guidance play in the work of these women, alongside full-color examples of their art. They discuss the future of visionary art and reveal how these artists have all been informed and inspired by deep inner experiences and seek to express visions of reality reminiscent of those encountered in shamanic trance, lucid dreams, psychedelic journeys, and spiritually transcendent experiences.

Showing how visionary art often contains an abundance of feminine energy, helping us see how we are all connected, the authors explore with each artist what it is about being a woman that has most influenced their artwork. They also examine the connection between visionary art and spirituality and the influence of Nature and sacred geometry. Beautiful.
