Alex Grey, certainly the least known of my favorite artists, is perhaps my favorite. I saw him speak as a visiting artist at C.U. (most of whom are quite dull). He mesmerized the audience with the most intense stories (this guy has been through some pretty bizarre phases) and images that any of us had seen. The following image isn't necessarily my favorite of his artwork, but it doesn't have to be seen as a part of a larger progression of images, as much of his work does.

Okay, I there is now a good Alex Grey page on the www.

He has an excellent book "Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey" published by Inner Traditions Intl. The book unfortunately doesn't go into any detail about some of his more intensely bizarre phases, such as collecting deformed fetuses while working at a morgue.

If you have come in the back door of Erik Johnson's Virtual Gallery via a net search, I suggest you try the front door...
