  • SHAMANIC ILLUMINATIONSWORK BY PABLO AMARINGO, ALEX GREY AND MIESHIEL Pablo Amaringo
  • PABLO AMARINGOPablo Amaringo (1938–2009) was born in Puerto Libertad, a settlement on the banks ofthe Ucayali River in Peru. He was 10 years old when he first took ayahuasca—avisionary brew used in shamanism. A severe heart illness—and the magical cure viaayahuasca—led Amaringo toward the life of a shaman. He eventually became a pow-erful curandero—learning the icaros, or healing songs, that the ayahuasca brew inspiredin him. In 1985 Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman byDennis McKenna and Luis Eduardo Luna was published. In 1988 Amaringo founded theUsko Ayar School of Painting in Pucallpa, a school dedicated to teaching art, along withthe rich botanical diversity of the jungle. Amaringo was honored with the Global 500award from the UN Environmental Program in 1992. His latest volume The AyahuascaVisions of Pablo Amaringo showcases his latest works. Many of the paintings inthis book will be on view. This exhibition is his first in New York City. ALEX GREYAlex Grey attended Columbus College of Art & Design and the School of the Museumof Fine Arts in Boston where he studied with conceptual artist Jay Jaroslav. He hastaught art at NYU, RISD, New York Open Center, Naropa University, the CaliforniaInstitute of Integral Studies, and Omega Institute. His art has been exhibited internation-ally including MoMA PS1, Tibet House, New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York;Grand Palais (Paris) and Sao Paulo Biennial (Brazil). A retrospective of his work was heldat the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in 1999. His works are in the collectionsof MTV, M.C. Dean, MoMA, Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Contemporary ArtSan Diego. Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey and Transfigurations are largeformat artbooks that chronicle his painted theophanies and shamanic performancework. The Mission of Art and Art Psalms are his philosophical reflections on creativity asa spiritual path. Alex Grey, with his wife Allyson Grey, co-founded CoSM, Chapel ofSacred Mirrors, a sanctuary of visionary art in Wappinger, New York. MIESHIELMieshiel was born in New York City. He attended Friends Seminary and received hisBFA in 1986 from California Institute of the Arts. Upon graduation Mieshiel moved intoa 19th century Masonic Temple in Los Angeles where he co-founded Temple ArtPerformance, a hub for avante-garde performance art, music and visual art. He latermoved to New Mexico and spent the next 24 years in near seclusion, living off-the-grid.In this high desert sanctuary timelessness and utter quiet allowed him to experience anendless barrage of mystical experiences where his art connection with Pablo Amaringowas revealed. In 1982 Mieshiel won a competition and created a street mural at IrvingPlace in New York City. His work has been exhibited nationally and is included in thepermanent collections of The Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, New Mexico and AmonCarter III, among other private collections.
