index « exchange « Art Book Featuring 50 Visionary artists including Alex Grey

posted : 2006.Jul.22 @ 8.01am

We are publishing an art book entitled 'Metamorphosis' mid to late 2006
This book will present the work of 50 contemporary artists of the Surreal Art, Fantastic Realism, Psychedelic & Visionary art traditions. We have endeavoured to compile a balanced publication, showing the extremes of both ‘light’ and ‘dark’ themes. The two extremes are usually presented separately, but we believe they belong together under the umbrella of human experience. By featuring the work of established artists such as Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, Victor Safonkin, Andrew Gonzalez, Brigid Marlin, Laurie Lipton, Daniel Martin Diaz, Chet Zar, De Es, Peter Gric, Kris Kuksi, Brom and Robert Venosa alongside that of relatively unknown – though extraordinary – artists, we have aimed to bring a host of new artists into the public eye. We hope that this publication will be the first of a series that will provide exposure for many more artists in future.

People who would like to recieve an email when the book 'Metamorphosis' has been launched are encouraged to register on The Surreal & Visionary Art forum All copies will be sold online.

hi jon!

thanks for your lovely post!

i am soooo glad that the tome has helped you open the gateways for this magical publication! those images are a very unique and intelligent set of choices. i like the notion of a "catalogue" to unfold the magical potential of these books... i resonate with the idea of making it a promotional tool for the artists, really propping them out. eventually i'd like to make a catalogue for my online project, spiral lotus, including art and articles to make it a super special intentional publication. i'm also inspired by nemo's new catalogue... very artful and special and you can find it on his site!

i can't wait to find out how your book will be laid out... what kind of design might illuminate the images, and what kind of writings might accompany them, as well as what format it will be in! i admit i only skimmed the website, but i love that pod collective can act as an independent space where we can fully prop out our works, with images, deep descriptive drops, links to actually buy the product and beyond. in my mind, it's ideal for posts like this to be not at all dependent on outside links... even for them to be moooore lush than the others, since this IS a super special elvish nexus.

keep me in mind : i'm an affordable graphic designer who can create lovely images to promote the ness.
