ALEX GREY

I recently came across some more Alex Grey content. This past April, the mystic artist hosted a full moon gathering in at his CoSM (Chapel of Sacred Mirrors) site in Wappingers Falls, NY, where a number of artists and disciples gathered to celebrate the spiritual side of art. Filmmaker Shay Motion set up camera and created the...

ERIK PARKER

NYC’s Erik Parker is a master stylist. In recent years, the artist’s work has become blue chip: his prints now sell through Pace Gallery, one of the biggies in New York and on the international scene. Yet part of Parker’s crossover appeal is the way he marries outsider styles (graffiti, illustration, art brut) with traditional fine art...

It’s a little last-minute, but there’s a group show tonight called MIXTAPE 2 that opens at Michael David’s studio in Bushwick, which features a few works by an artist that just came across my radar: Jen Hitchings. Some may know her as the manager of Pierogi Gallery on N. 9th in Williamsburg, which is where I’ve seen Hitchings many times...

ALEX GREY

For those inclined to the more mystical side of contemporary art, there is perhaps no bigger name than Alex Grey. His mix of new-age design, ancient iconography, op-art, and fractal imaging has made Grey the avatar of an anarcho-spiritualist movement that includes other visionaries like Paul Laffoley and Jonathan Marshall, to name but a few. Grey’s...
