I have enjoyed his artwork. However, I was not impressed with the mediums he chose to use at Entheon this year. The way in which it was displayed seemed very cluttered as well. I am not sure why such great artwork would be almost unconciously displayed in a cluttered manner.

i now think its everyone else that automatically associates what entheon says or does with grey, but when you visit their village thats not really the case. its not about him, not about ego worship, and entheon did a great job of post-event interacting and getting feedback from others on tribe. after visiting their village it was a humbling show of collective effort.

but if people want to do the celebrity slam then i would have to say yes, visionary. but its interesting how people interpret both art and the artist.

The title of this thread is a false dilemma.

But Entheon Village was the real thing.

Personally, I like the idea that my incorporating the 'nazi' the thread lies flaying before it's even born.

MOVE ON FOLKS... there's nothing to see here...

This is the second time I've read threads here on Eplaya connecting Alex with nazism & anti-semitism, with no trace of proof to back up the claim. Is it too much to ask that you explain yourself before making accusations?

ya ok sorry, i sounded too serious there. but aside from that, I'm a nerd who doesn't follow the punchline - how come the Alex Grey/nazi connection?

Well, it all started with Mel Gibson's roadside passion play last summer. I got all lathered up about it while at the same time some other twit started raving about Alex Graye. We ragged on him for his adulation of this guy, and then things got a little boring.

I was thinking about Monty Python's Life of Brian when it seemed like a good idea to see what woud happen if I suggested Mr. Graye might not be a New Age artist/visionary, but instead, a Nazi scumbag. Just to see who'd go for it.

Thanks for obliging me.
