Special evening Art Church Conversation with Laurence Caruana with Alex and Allyson Grey
A 45 minute visual presentation followed by discussion
The Visionary Ideal: Life as Art-making and Spirit-quest
Vision, healing, transcendence - rarely has an art movement emerged with such a vital message for humanity. But what is Visionary Art? What are its ideals? And how does the artist’s quest appear from the inside? In a rare appearance stateside, Laurence Caruana shares the artist’s journey, recounting his life-long involvement with Visionary Art through books, manifestoes, seminars - and now the founding of an academy in Vienna. Together with Alex and Allyson Grey, we’ll approach the mysterious jewel from multiple directions, seeking to elucidate “the Visionary Ideal: Life as Art-making and Spirit-quest.”
Laurence Caruana is widely known for his works integrating the spiritual truths of different wisdom traditions. Classically rendered in the mischtechnik, his art evokes the Sacred by harmonizing different cultural symbols and styles. Also a gifted writer, Caruana has authored novels and books, including the renowned Manifesto of Visionary Art. From his home in France, he frequently travels to exhibit his work, lecture on Visionary art, and teach classical techniques of painting at his annual Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy. His latest book is Enter Through the Image. www.lcaruana.com
