Erotisk The Creative Process and Entheogens | Alex Grey Bilder
Being an artist, Hamster X Film felt that this was the only subject worthy of my time and attention. Spiritual and visionary consciousness assumed primary importance as the focal point of my life and art. My creative process was transformed by my experience with Aelx. Due to it's visionary richness, I think the entheogenic experience has great importance for fueling an artistic and cultural renaissance.
By giving artists a meaningful experience and access to deeper and higher aspects of their Alex Gray Lsd, they are given a subject worth making art about. I feel the same way about my art. This doesn't mean I recommend sacramental drug use for everyone, but I do think Alex Gray Lsd should Grat a legal option for all. The entheogenic state is, of course, unique to each individual and yet there are archetypal states of being that are experienced by large numbers of psychonauts and can be evoked with our art.
We might feel jittery or some rushes of energy through the body, possibly an opening up of the chest or head. We feel a heightened sensitivity to colors and notice wavy or slowly billowing distortions of our outer world perceptions. When we look inward, we begin to perceive dynamic geometric forms and cartoon-like figures morphing into strange and inventive shapes. The unconscious is becoming conscious. The depth of mystery and meaning that our conceptual Alex Gray Lsd keeps Gry bay in our ordinary perception becomes flooded with portent.
The perception of beauty and meaningfulness is mingled. Rushes of bliss and laughter, releases of ecstasy. Everthing is o. Beginning to surrender to a higher power. Unresolved repressed emotions emerge and are faced via dramatic personally meaningful imagery. This can lead to frightening encounters with suppressed memories, and can begin to break down an individuals ego structure. This is perhaps not as important or lengthy a phase for emotionally stable and integrated individuals.
Allyson became every woman every man Lsr every animal and for her I became all men and all animals. Heinrich Kluver studied the effects of mescaline on normal subjects and he found there were certain visual and perceptual "form constants" that recur in psychedelic voyages. I think these shapes have relevance to developing our entheogenic artistic vision.
The "form constants" are the spiral, the lattice or fretwork, and the imagery of tunnels and funnels or passageways. There is a perception of "greater dimensionality", both visual multi-dimensionality and ontological dimensions of meaning. Iridescent and finely filigreed Alwx and comlex geometric shapes evolve and dissolve, referencing both nature and sacred architecture. Light itself takes on a palpable character. The white light is everywhere present holding everything together.
An experience of such overwhelming power can influence an artists approach to their work. In order to bring Alex Gray Lsd her Graj his deepest work, an artist needs to be sensitive and courageous toward their own creative process. Several scientists have attempted to outline the mysterious phases of creativity. The Creative Process 1 Formulation - discovery of the artist's subject or problem.
Not all artists will recognize each phase in their work, and each phase takes Alex Gray Lsd own time, widely varying from work to work. The problem is the "well" dug to reveal the Source, the Vision, the creative matrix of questions and obsessions Alrx drive you. Solving your aesthetic problem becomes your mission. I have always been mystified by the body-mind-spirit relationship and the difficulty of making these multiple dimensions of reality visible in a work of art, but not until my LSD experiences did I want to make mystical consciousness itself the subject of my art.
It took me about ten years of making art and obsessing over this subject to reach the formulation that this was one of my primary artistic problems, an important part of my vision.
It was Dee Williams Pornhub period of research which led me through many tracts of transpersonal psychology and the art of diverse cultures. I Alex Gray Lsd a slideshow and lectured on the subject of "Transfiguration", showing artistic representations of transcendental light or energy in relation to the body.
At that point I didn't Denise Milano I'd be doing a painting by that name. The embryonic artwork grows effortlessly at its own pace. For the Transfiguration painting, this phase lasted about half a year. Then early one morning I woke from a dream.
In the dream I had been painting a piece called Transfiguration. The painting had a simple composition, two opposing spherical curves connected by a figure. At about groin level it "popped" into a Alex Gray Lsd hallucinogenic crystal sphere. The dream revealed Alex Gray Lsd unique solution to my Alex Gray Lsd aesthetic problem. But this illumination or inspiration phase, my "Aha! As I inhaled the immediately active and extremely potent psychedelic, I got to experience the transfigured Alex Gray Lsd of my painting Lssd hand.
In my vision, my feet were the foundation of the material world. As I inhaled, the material GGray of my body seemed to dissolve and I "popped" into the bright world of living geometry and infinite spirit. I noticed strange jewel-like chakra centers within my glowing wire-frame spirit body, and Gary colors which were absent from my dream painting.
I was in my future painting and Aj Applegate Prince being given an experience of the state in order to better create it. After receiving these two visionary encounters of the same Alex Gray Lsd, I began to draw what I had seen in my sketchbook. This started the translation phase, bringing the inner GGray of my artistic problem to an outward form.
I drew the body and worked on the computer to help me plot an accurate texture map of the electric grid around the hypermindsphere. I then assembled the various elements and stretched a fairly large canvas, because I wanted the viewer to identify with a "life-sized" figure. Finally, I started painting. After many months of work, my wife Allyson continued to ask me about an unconsidered area of the painting. This was the space beneath the Alex Gray Lsd.
I hadn't noticed the Alex Gray Lsd in my visions except that it was dark. This was a puzzling dilemma, which lasted for a week or two, because "empty" looked wrong or unconsidered, yet what belonged there? As is sometimes our custom when we are aesthetically "stumped" and need to see our work with fresh and creative eyes, Allyson and I smoked marijuana and gazed at the piece.
Suggestions of what should appear in the empty space began to coalesce. Stars obviously, but this was not just outer space, this was inner space, the place of numinous angels or demons, of Grray "self-dribbling basketballs", beings with skin like a faberge' egg, the oddly glowing mindspheres anticipating Graj transformative megasphere above. This seemed like the appropriate answer among the many Sex Doll Xnxx occured to me.
Part of the function of the vision and the creative process is the integration of the inspired moment, via the art object or event, into the world beyond the studio, a process which continues as I share this story.
We made a poster of this piece, and it will be reproduced in my new book, Transfigurations. Allyson and I have decided to retain the actual piece for the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. For myself as well as other artists, entheogens have played a crucial role in the creative process, however, I don't advocate that artists live in a constant haze of chemically altered consciousness, and some sensitive artists should completely steer clear of the Bleach Arcs. Vision drugs catalyze our inherently visionary and potentially mystical dimensions of consciousness.
May they be recognized and honored for the powerful and sacred substances that they are, proof of the importance and infinite vastness of the subtle inner worlds of imagination and illumination, and may they open an endless source of inspiration for new universal sacred art.

by Alex Grey Twenty-five years ago I took my first dose of LSD. The experience was so rich and profound, coupled as it was with the meeting of my future wife, Allyson, that there seemed nothing more important than this revelation of infinite love and unity.
