Visionary Art Manifesto

“The history of Visionary art is characterized by the attempt to find a new visual language – a language that may overcome the inherent contradiction (of seeing what cannot be seen) and express in visual form the ‘supra-visual’ or, as we might say in French, le ‘sur-visuel’. In such a language, the images of art, myth, and dream interfuse, different cultural symbols combine, and new forms are found so as to express the resulting vision — be that sacred, psychedelic, esoteric, oneiric, occult, alternative, archetypal, primitive, transpersonal, fantastic or – as it sometimes happens – surreal.”
