Alex Grey is gonna be in LA
    #3855365 - 03/02/05 02:51 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

For all you alex grey fans, and if you're on the shroomery I bet you'd like him, he's been doing these fundraisers for his sacred hall of mirrors.  I'm seeing him in LA on saturday. 

http://www.alexgrey.com/





my friend saw him in san diego, and said it was AMAZING.  Anyone in the area should definitely not miss it  :thumbup:

some of his stuff is pretty cool (and I own some), but a lot of it is a little too similar and not as great. I'd still check out this event if I were anywhere near it, though.

aw cmon man. At least figure out a reason why you hate something... especially an extremely talented artist.

Hey, your opinions are your own right. The whole pretentious/obvious thing is just your opinion.

I just can't imagine how an artist painting the 'third eye' would piss someone off...

Maybe certain people have never viewed the world from their third eye, and lack the appreciation for a talent who can put down on paper with such detail....

some of it is very very inspired.
shockingly familiar to the psychonaut.

having got successful though
now much of the stuff seems like repetition of the one successful idea - wel thats hamburgers for ya.

there is even an alex grey theme park someplace for a more fulfilling experience.

yes definitely! One of the banners there showed this ball with bright pink/green patterns repeating, and I kept thinking "damn i've seen that so many times!" He's a great guy. It was a lot of fun.

I would suggest you haven't seen a lot of his work if you think it all looks the same. I just bought Transfigurations and lo and behold, it doesn't all look the same.

First of all, you DON'T need the hostility.
It has no place in this forum, and I have NO tolerance for it--toward me or anyone else. If you keep it up, you won't be around the MAL forum to even be able to say stuff like that. You will respect the opinions and follow the forum rules posted at the top of the forum, or you won't be around here.

Secondly, you have some serious self-pondering if you get seriously mad at art like this. My point was this: how could someone painting something like what Alex Grey paints piss someone off? It's not controversial, it's not political, it's not morbid, there's no violence, dead babies or rape scenes... Unless you are a religious nut and get offended by anything not equal to your own personal beliefs, I don't see how it could. But still in such a case, respect still applies.

His art is full of such precise anatomy that is incorporated into spirituality in such a way that someone only so studied in the human body could produce. Alex has a long history of working in hospitals and morgues to create such accurate paintings of the human body. NO WHERE IN THAT SENTENCE did I mention the Third Eye. I think your assumptions and ignorance is really blocking you from appreciating good art. For this I feel pity for you.

To come to Yrtlzmo's defense by saying this:

Quote:

You're hardly presenting respect for other's opinions. BY somebody not agreeing your your views on his art you assume him ignorant. Its hard to chastize somebody for showing disrespect to other's opinions and then give it back in a condescending and equally disrespectful mannar.


Yrtlzmo says his work is obvious which would piss anybody off about art. Doesn't Brittney Spears music piss you off? It has nothing controversial about it but if somebody said that you would assume they were pissed because its was obvious and lazy art. Don't be a hypocrite.

"And we, inhabitants of the great coral of the Cosmos, believe the atom (which still we cannot see) to be full matter, whereas, it too, like everything else, is but an embroidery of voids in the Void, and we give the name of being, dense and even eternal, to that dance of inconsistencies, that infinite extension that is identified with absolute Nothingness and that spins from its own non-being the illusion of everything."

You were warned, and you repeated your flaming, your insults, and your disregard for others' opinions.

If you don't play nice, don't come back here.
