Alex Grey Book Launch
Alex Grey & Allyson Grey (US)
Down Under ‘Net of Being’ Book Launch
After the hugely positive response from their first Australian tour in 2011, we are so happy to welcome international visionary artists Alex Grey & Allyson Grey back to Australia for an exclusive appearance at Eclipse2012. The Greys will be present at the festival to display their magnificent works of art, in addition to engaging our community in artist presentations and live painting. This special occasion also marks the official Australian launch of Net of Being, Alex Grey’s first book in 10 years!
Net of Being Book
Alex Grey’s painting Net of Being-inspired by a blazing vision of an infinite grid of Godheads during an ayahuasca journey-has reached millions as the cover and interior of the band TOOL’s Grammy award–winning triple-platinum album, 10,000 Days. It is one of many images, created by Alex, used in apparel, jewelry, tattoos, and music videos. Alex Grey’s mystic paintings articulate the many realms of consciousness. These iconic works embed Alex Grey and his vision into our culture’s living Net of Being by revealing the interwoven energies of body, soul, love and spirit that illuminate the core of our being.
Presenting over 200 images, including many never-before-published paintings as well as the masterworks, St. Albert and Godself, Net of Being documents Alex’s live-painting engagements, the ‘social sculpture’ called CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, that Alex co-founded with his wife and creative collaborator, artist Allyson Grey, and his influence on the counter culture of the world. This book explores how the mystical experience expressed in Alex’s work opens a new understanding of our shared consciousness and unveils the deep influence art can have on cultural evolution.
