Visionary Experience includes 15 artists from Europe, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco spanning 5 decades of artwork, including H. R. Giger and Olga Spiegel’s masterwork, Widening Horizon, from 1971-1972.
Visionary art contains elements of surrealism, symbolism, psychedelic, fantastic realism and the abstract that reveal narratives of the conscious and subconscious. Artists in Visionary Experience trained at Fine Art Academy’s, the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, and autodidact studies.
At times of change and cultural unrest, innovation and creativity come alive, as people adapt and react to their surroundings. Visionary Experience challenges the imprinting of beliefs and perspectives of conventional thought, rearranging and expanding our view about the universe in an endless display of human intelligence and imagination. A number of artists in Visionary Experience came of age during The 60s, illuminated with images of freedom protests, flower power and a nation divided by war. This defining decade in American history had a profound influence on these artists that can still be seen today.
The artwork in Visionary Experience resides within artistic journeys, self-awareness and transformation. Such explorations into the mystic include mythology, psychology, psychic, religious, natural, mechanical and scientific insights. Wide open thinking and communication with self and audience is one of humanities greatest attributes, pushing boundaries as the trajectory of human potential reaches further.
Examples of visionary art can be seen in such contemporary movements as digital art, street art and contemporary realism.
