I Always loved Alex Grey Part 2[ rebuild after destruction]
Alex Grey is one of my favorite painters of all time. The perplex paintings he produces carry a very spiritual context. This series illustrates the connection between my own inner thoughts expressed threw glass to his ability to express fully threw paint. Most talented painters don't compare to the skills he posses which is one of the reasons I respect his work so much. His attention to detail is provocative and has helped open my eye to art as well as the perceptional world. We live in a questionable existence in which a few find great beauty but so many others get lost, I wish more could reconnect to the soul of art and less to the distraction that is life completely fueled by money and power. Peace to all that understand. No disrespect only Unification of minds. Together we're infinite and our voices can be heard far and wide..
This piece is not perfect nor are any of us, still its up to us to look inside ourselves.
