Product Description

COSM: THE MOVIE is an invitation to personal reflection, growth, and harmony, leading spiritual adventurers on an enriching and sense-heightening journey into the visionary art cosmos of world-renowned painter, sculptor, and author Alex Grey. Grey is our guide on a cinematic pilgrimage through the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors gallery in New York City, where the artworks combine science and spiritual wisdom. Reflecting the human experience from birth to death and beyond, the vividly rendered depictions of human anatomy and transcendental imagery suggests the unity of all things. COSM: THE MOVIE reverently illuminates possibilities of enlightenment and the evolution of conscience and consciousness. Fusing the power of music with stunning cinematorgraphy, director Nick Krasnic and narrator Alex Grey channel the raw power of Grey’s art into a potent film odyssey that captures the essence of this unique sacred space, and offers rare, personal insight from one of the most significant artists of our time.

Amazon.com

Following Alex Grey's first film, Artmind, CoSM is a documentary that further defines Grey's lofty spiritual ideals by walking the viewer through a series of works made for Grey's masterpiece, The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Grey, known for his cosmic, anatomically detailed paintings of humans connecting with the universe, takes the viewer on a journey from birth to death in this non-profit gallery/gathering space created for community gatherings. Starting with artworks depicting the physical body, Grey's work branches out into an exploration of various stages in a person's psychic and spiritual development, culled from a complex mix of Eastern and Western philosophical and religious perspectives. One potent example is a painting of humans dissolved into pure light, rendered in a series of hyperbolic curves and light beams bouncing off one another. Filmmaker Nick Krasnic does a fine job of allowing Grey's narration, as he explains the concepts and inspirations behind each piece, to be the focus of each scene, though CoSM's rave-era trance music soundtrack adds unnecessary melodrama. Watching CoSM is a meditation not only on art viewing but also on an artist who believes in unlimited human potential. —-Trinie Dalton

This dvd takes you on a personal tour of grey's own museum/workshop/education center ...whatever you'd like to call it. Alex has been kind enough to offer his talents to children, beginners, laymans and anyone else at his Chapel of Sacred Mirrors structure in New York. He is simply revolutionary, mystic, inspired, and detailer of all things cosmic, spiritual and metapysical. What I think i enjoyed most by the end of this dvd was that his art is enlightening and uplifting giving you a spiritual feeling all the while being non-denominational. I was (and still am) a big Salvador Dali fan but after discovering AG my attention has been drawn to him. Amazon has had a killer price on his book boxed set and I highly suggest getting that as a companion piece to this dvd. also - die hard TOOL fans will be pleased to view AG artwork in its full glory on this dvd.

I watched this with my parents, and all of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Its like you're walking through the Chapel with Alex as your guide. He gives you the backstory of all his paintings, and says in his own words what motivated him to make them.

Its really impressive listening to him speak about these paintings. When you see his artwork, you can't help but realize that he's not just an incredibly intelligent and scientifically knowledgeable person, but he's also intensely spiritual. Then, to hear him SPEAK as clearly and deeply as he paints, you realize that you're dealing with someone who has inherited, and is passing on, a sum total of knowledge and wisdom the likes of which has been impossible up until now.

No other artist is able to convey so many different but related themes so densely in his work and words.

"The Sacred Mirrors are a journey through our physical, socio-political, and spiritual anatomy." - Alex Grey

The internal architecture of the human skeleton, viscera, blood vessels, nerves, the subtle energetic system of the body--all are fodder for the trippy visions of artist Alex Grey. "My life is committed to making artwork that wakes people up to the miracle of Life", the artist once said, and a group a friends and supporters sought to make a sacred space of contemplation dedicated to the Sacred Mirrors series and Grey's other works--the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM).

Although Grey felt a natural setting to be the ideal location of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM resides in NYC where life-sized and super-sized portraits and sculptures convey Grey's unique perspective on consciousness and the web of life.

A documentary set inside the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, the CoSM DVD gives viewers a tour of the "multi-dimensional perspective painted visions of common human experiences" such as birth, death, kissing, copulating, and praying. Sculptures such as World Soul--a bronze sculpture depicting a multi-faced winged guardian atop a globe--are also included in the DVD.

The soft-spoken Grey barely touches on media and method, rather addressing the larger spiritual and socio-political themes represented in his work. It would seem that hallucinogenic drugs have inspired a large portion of his work. For example, he says that a "high-dose LSD experience" inspired Theologue--a painting where Grey attempted to capture the essence of how humanity creates this elaborate illusion known as "reality".

Indeed, Grey credits his wife, Allyson, with inspiring the Sacred Mirror series.

This is an absolutely mind blowing experience with phenomenal audio, visuals, and narrative. I bought it just becuase I like Alex Grey's art; what I found is an extraordinary exploration and discovery of vast proportions, from the physical to the metaphysical, from the base human passions and proclivities, to the richness of creative living. It is truly a trascendent experience, which Alex guides your through.

Alex Grey's amazing paintings are truly from a higher dimensional level than our normal 3-D world. He discusses his work on this DVD. This sacred space in New York must be a total spirtual experience. You will enjoy this DVD if you are interested in expanding your consciousness.

Art on a whole different level. If you feel as if you or someone you know needs some perspective spiritually, of any denomination, show them this film. It is an pure view of reality as we know it. The gravity of this film instills transcendence without the use of drugs by the viewer. Buy this and show it to everyone you know or meet. Then go visit the Chapel in New York..
