Visionary artist Alex Grey prying open the third eye
Alex Grey’s dimensional art unveils the the unseen energies within the body, the psyche and the cosmos. He calls on sources beyond the mind and waking consciousness to create evocative images of what is sensed but rarely spoken of or depicted visually.
His art is in the ancient tradition of the shamans who elicit awareness of and healing in the energy centers and patterns that are within and beyond physical reality. Grey’s works stimulate a greater sensitivity to what the modern mind patterned by scientism tends to shut out from cognition. His paintings are intended to open the “doors of perception”, and awaken the native, intuitive, psychic response.
All praise to Alex and the work of those who break through the limits on what is deemed “acceptable” to everyday awareness. The Blue OK heartily supports the re-embrace of many of the ancient traditional means of knowledge that have been cast out by modern scientific “knowledge”, thus allowing for the awakening of greater levels of consciousness.

This beautifully illustrated book assists the viewer on a graphic, visionary journey through the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual anatomy of the self as depicted in the detailed paintings of Alex Grey. From anatomically correct rendering of the body's systems, Grey moves to the shamanistic and energetic systems with such images as "Universal Mind Lattice", envisioning the sacred and esoteric symbolism of the body and the forces that define its living field of energy.
