Jamali is an American artist of international importance. Mystical experience and spiritual ritual are the daily practice of his art, and the source of his vocabulary is in his dreams. As Jamali has said, these are not personal dreams, they are communal dreams and their expression in painting has become a new movement in art called Mystical Expressionism. In his introduction, Donald Kuspit says that Jamali's art answers modern art's social and political concerns of alienation and despair by fusing crosscultural communal religious imagery with modernist abstract art to create a new postmodernism. This volume is a sequel to "Mystical Expressionism: Paintings," also written by Donald Kuspit and published by Rizzoli in 1997.
