Robert Venosa art with text by Terence McKenna

Craftsman House, Australia, 1999

A comprehensive retrospective of Robert Venosa’s art throughout his entire artistic career.

An artist of high accomplishment,  much of his work reflects images of his inner mindscapes. His book, Illuminatus, further defines the genre of Fantastic Realism (Surrealism, Visionary, Hypo-realism, Psychedelic). With a preface by the Australian author, Nevill Drury, and essays by a host of artist-contemporaries such as Mati Klarwein. Ernst Fuchs, HR Giger, Illuminatus is simply a mind-expanding book.

"Tantamount to Venosa's extraordinary art is the accompanying text by...Terence McKenna, art historian, writer, and leading spokesperson for the myriad explorers of mind-altering substances...His talent for word crafting is par excellence and his text in Illuminatus is as illustrious as Venosa's artwork.


Both have explored our ultimate frontier, the wilderness of mind.  They return from their travels in the noosphere and ... bring us a volume the nature and calibre of which has never before been published."

-Richard Carey, Four Winds, Boulder, CO-

Today, Illuminatus remains a classic.

The Paintings of

Robert Venosa

Pomegranate, USA, 1991

This book showcases the masterful artistry and fathomless vision of Robert Venosa. The text gives us a road map of his journey, but it is through his paintings - reproduced here in vivid color - that we catch a glimpse of the man and begin to understand the depth and passion of his life's work.
Celestial, mythological, fantastic, futuristic, surreal, erotic --words alone cannot describe the infinite beauty of Venosa's creations. They must be experienced and savored, examined and re-examined, if one is to know their full impact. 

This book represents the evolved work of the artist with many portraits and views into light-filled vistas.
