The Irresistible Stream of Time
A New Wave of Visionary Art
September 9, 2010
In a city built upon generations of history, it is no surprise that the cresting wave of visionary art finds itself following in the wake of the Fantastic Realist lineage in Vienna. The recent opening and ongoing international exhibition filled the walls of the historic Galerie 10 with dazzling visions of otherworldly beauty, drawing a capacity crowd on opening night. Attendees included many legendary artists from previous generations who set the foundations for this new light to pour through, opening long-awaited dialogues and bridging the gap between established and emerging artists.

Many of the exhibiting artists reveled in the opportunity to meet each other in the flesh for the first time after years of collaboration through online networks promoting the worldwide visionary art movement. The celebration of art and artist went long into the night, like a dream no one would choose to awaken from. This was destiny.

The exhibition was called into being by Amanda Sage, who studied intensely with the master Ernst Fuchs in Austria for a decade. Her vision is to bridge the traditions of the fantastic realists into the emerging cultural phenomenon of the next generation of visionary artists. Delivering the opening speech for the exhibition was De Es Schwertberger, a legendary Viennese artist who has been evolving his magnificent visions for decades. Along with Amanda Sage, artist Dennis Konstantin and gallery owner Michael Scheer delivered an opening dialogue which set the tone for an exciting evening, and for a new era in the arts.
