The visionary art movement comprises a wave of artists who emphasize creativity as the foundation of consciousness and an agent of social change. While aligning with the realities of contemporary social conditions, visionary art simultaneously interfaces with non-physical dimensions of reality, revealing aspects of the world beyond that which can be measured by conventional means. Inherently optimistic regarding human potential and the power of intention to shape reality, it is art aims have an impact, to introduce new symbolic frames and create ritualistic spaces wherein personal and collective identities can be consciously shaped and refashioned. Visionary art is based on a principle of creative exploration of potential–possible worlds, ways of knowing, states of being, forms of communication and communion–without searching for a final resting point. Creative decisions are seen as probes for further possibilities, rather than as all-consuming limitations that close possibilities down. The art represented in this gallery aims to impact the world through creative practices that inspire, empower, and increase the bandwidth of human potential.
