We all understand the world in different ways – whether through science or spirituality – it is one, the other, or a combination of the both. Art is how we tend to express our ideas about the bigger picture, trying to reach others and connect on some level, to come to some mutual understanding despite differences in age, sex, or origin. After all, we all live in the same world. I personally believe it’s about a combination; I refuse to follow religion or think strictly scientifically, but rather place myself in that grey area. (No pun intended… but it’s a good one!)
Alex Grey is an American artist that specializes in spiritual and psychedelic art. Whether or not you’ve dabbled in psychedelics, his art speaks to all. You don’t have to drug yourself to understand the ideas his art is portraying. Combining elements of color, anatomy, grids, and nature… his art is equally spiritual and scientific in its expression. Our world is undeniably sewn together with both.
