This unique series of paintings takes the viewer on a graphic, visionary journey through the physical and metaphysical anatomy of the self. 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. Some people will be illuminated and transformed in the process of viewing.

I thoroughly enjoy Alex Grey's work and would have given this 5 stars if not for one image in particular in which he seems to be hierarchically categorizing sexual acts, placing heteronormative acts near "godliness" and homosexual acts near "evil.
View all 3 comments. Not as big or as broad as Transfigurations ; Sacred Mirrors could be described as his exploration and reinterpretation of the human body. It's some pretty wild visual art, and worth checking out. Alex Grey has done a lot of artwork for the band Tool, which is where I found out about him. If you're into their artwork, check him out. Es un libro que se tiene que leer con una mente abierta.
Lo recomiendo! Love the art. It was fun to see the pictures a bit larger. The book starts by attempting to make you affirm that Alex Gray is some kind of shaman. This is a bit odd, but in any case the art inside is amazing and well worth exploring.

Espejos Sagrados: El arte visionario de Alex Grey
Grey, tan detallados y anatomicamente precisos como un ilustracion medica, presentan al hombre como un ser arquetipico luchando por conseguir la unidad cosmica La vision de Grey de la humanidad imperfecta pero perfeccionable es como un antidoto contra el cinismo y el malestar espiritual prevealente en mucho del arte contemporaneo. Los Espejos Sagrados, presentados aqui en su totalidad, han sido exhibidos por todo el mundo. Las figuras son de tamano natural y se enfrentan difectamente al espectador para conseguir, precisamente, el efecto de espejo: permaneciendo frente a ellos el espectador puede "ver dentro" de si mismo. Ademas, Grey ha pintado los diferentes sistemas en un estado ideal y saludable para que puedan funcionar como ayuda en la curacion mediante visulizaciones o meditacion. Al retratar los diferentes sexos y razas, Espejos Sagrados tambien nos cuestiona sobre como nos vemos reflejados en dos demas.
