His digital art was very sensuous and thought provoking.
Metamorphosis by definition is about profound change. Most commonly in form, from one stage to another as a caterpillar to pupa to butterfly. A darker definition might be more like the Kafka story of Gregor Samsa who transforms into a giant cockroach overnight, or darker still, a complete transformation of form and substance by Magic or Witchcraft.
Inside these pages you will find Mages of many mediums who each have the ability to reveal a different reality for us all. The conceptual artist Bruce Nauman said it best in his sculpture "Window". It reads "The true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths". This collection of art is palpable, you can feel its power, its sway over the mind of the viewer. It imprints itself dynamically almost as witnessing an accident creates an indeleble mark on the psyche; Once viewed we will never be the same. The darkness and the light are shown through the minds of these visionaries. Not polar opposites, but all shades of experience.
Metamorphosis is itself a treasure, finely bound and of the highest quality materials and printing, true to the artists' vision. The profound statements of each artist is an enhancement to the viewing experience assisting the viewer's pleasure and insight.
Jon Beinart, The man behind Metamorphosis has united surreal and visionary artists through The Surreal and Visionary Art Forum, which held the largest collection of links and images to Surreal and Visionary artists, as well as a vehicle by which they may interact. This forum gave rise to the Beinart Surreal Art Collective, solidifying this important movement.
