COSM: The Movie by Alex Grey

Alex Grey (born November 29, 1953) is an American artist specializing in spiritual and psychedelic art (or visionary art) that is sometimes associated with the New Age movement. Grey is a Vajrayana practitioner. His field of expertise spans a variety of forms including performance art, process art, installation art, sculpture, visionary art, and painting. He and his wife Allyson Grey are the co-founders of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, a non-profit institution supporting Visionary Culture in New York City.

View the clip below for an introduction to Alex Grey and his art by himself.

COSM is a documentary that defines Grey’s spiritual ideals by walking the viewer through a series of works made for Grey’s masterpiece, The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Grey, known for his cosmic, anatomically detailed paintings of humans connecting with the universe, takes the viewer on a journey from birth to death in this non-profit gallery/gathering space created for community gatherings. Starting with artworks depicting the physical body, Grey’s work branches out into an exploration of various stages in a person’s psychic and spiritual development, culled from a complex mix of Eastern and Western philosophical and religious perspectives. One potent example is a painting of humans dissolved into pure light, rendered in a series of hyperbolic curves and light beams bouncing off one another. Grey explains the concepts and inspirations behind each piece, to be the focus of each scene. Watching CoSM is a meditation not only on art viewing but also on an artist who believes in unlimited human potential.

    Tool hooked up with him. They sought him out.
    Adam Jones (Tool guitarist) has done some artwork and sculptures that Grey has put on display in his studio.
    But ya, I really dont understand the Obama endorsement either, I find that to be real odd just considering the political/spiritual philosophy of Grey.

    This guy is great, but creepy. Can’t belive he’s backing obama though, and look at the symbol used as the logo for grey’s website.

    I’d laugh if he turned out to be a rosicrucian or freemason or somthing. :D

    Dan- The obama picture with the earth in his head doesnt mean he supports what the president is doing.. who knows..i doubt it really..

    its more like a prayer i think, so people focus this energy on him by seeing this and hopefully it will help things.

  • my friends, he is sending out a prayer for the leader of our country. we should pray for obama. do you want him to do good? if so, say so.
