"VISIONARY ART"

The title of MARK HENSON's "Sharing the Wealth" says it all. As he explains, "It asks viewers to take a look at their material vices, to remember what’s truly important in life." The other is "Prema Gaia" by SHANTI YORIA. Ialtenergy.com refers to Gaia as "Arising from the name of the Greek goddess as mother earth, it suggests a living and caring quality of nurture and development. Like that of a living organism that seeks to grow, expand and make the most of its environment." Both paintings belong to a genre called Visionary Art. Widewalls.ch describes it as follows: "Artists have attempted to reach and to show what the eyes don’t see, but the inner voice or the soul comprehend... aimed to transcend the physical sphere and produce a wider vision of awareness which included the spiritual and the mystical."  

With our eyes open, we can change the world
