Every once in a great while an artist emerges who does more than simply reflect the social trends of the time. These artists are able to transcend established thinking and help us redefine ourselves and our world. Today, a growing number of art critics, philosophers, and spiritual seekers believe they have found that vision in the art of Alex Grey. Transfigurationsis the eagerly awaited follow-up to Sacred Mirrors, one of the most successful art books of the 1990s. It includes all of Grey's major works completed in the past decade, including the masterful seven-paneled altarpiece Nature of Mind, called ""the grand climax of Grey's art"" by Donald Kuspit. Grey's portrayals of human beings blend scientific exactitude with visionary depictions of universal life energy, leading us on the soul's journey from material world encasement to recovery of our divinely illuminated core.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As much about the mysteries of the life as it is about the creative process, Transfigurations displays the mind, spirit, and soul of the artist in a way that defies traditions of dryly worded art books or demure coffee table decorations. . . . I am treasuring this book, keeping it on my shelf and opening its pages when I need inspiration." * Diana Rajchel, The Beltane Papers, Mar 2006 *
"A beautiful, unusual work." * The Midwest Book Review, May 2002 *
"Grey's work, like all great transcendental art, is not merely symbolic or imaginary: it is a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being." * Ken Wilber, author of Integral Psychology and The Eye of Spirit *
"Grey's vision of a flawed but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art." * New York Times *
"Alex Grey is making some of the most beautifully refined imagist work in the country today." * Walter Hopps, senior curator, Guggenheim Museum and Menil Collection *
"Grey brings us an ever-deepening visual contemplation on the nature of personal and transpersonal identity." * Bodhi Tree Bookstore, Winter 2002/Spring 2003 *
"Grey's portrayals of human beings blend scientific exactitude with visionary depictions of universal life energy....a rare artist embraced by critics, spiritual leaders, and the general public during his lifetime. Grey's art leads us on a transformative journey through the darkness of the material world to the divinely illumined core....an ever-deepening visual contemplation on the nature of personal and transpersonal identity." * SirReadaLot.org, Oct. 1, 2004 *
