Read full description of the books Void - In Art:Void In Art brings together the author's many years of meditation practice with his knowledge of art history and the sacred wisdom texts of Eastern philosophy to show how the experience of the Great Void of ultimate reality, a central aspect of the meditation experience, is embodied in different ways in mostly esoteric Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist art as well as in the work of several modern and contemporary Eastern and Western artists. Lesser metaphysical and existential voids are also discussed in their appropriate contexts. The Eastern section of the book is largely organized by different cultures and genres while in the Western section the examination of the works of art is constructed in a more chronological fashion to show the rationale behind the basic abhorrence of the Void in art until the early 19th century. Throughout the book the importance of the Void in art and life is emphasized.

Mark Levy’s Biography #2
Mark Levy was born in Flushing, Queens in 1962, and lived in spitting distance of Shea Stadium. He was frightened of public school, loved playing baseball and football, ran home to watch ape films on the 4:30 Movie, listened to The Jam and The Buzzcocks, and read magic trick books.
At 18, he went to Queens College –- a school whose most notable scholar is Jerry Seinfeld. Mark enjoyed college, because he got to pick his own subjects. Instead of Math, he took a course in which he analyzed monster pictures. Not surprisingly, Mark received excellent grades, and graduated with a Magna Cum Laude writing degree in 1985.
Outside of college, no one cared that he could analyze monster pictures, so he became a bookstore clerk. That started his long affiliation with the book industry. He moved from retail to publishing, and from publishing to wholesaling.
Along the way, he was steadily promoted, and became a sales manager, a director of special projects, and helped his companies sell over one billion dollars worth of books. He was nominated three times for The Publishers Weekly Rep of the Year Award.
Why was Mark so successful at selling? One of his colleagues said it best (and she didn’t mean it as a compliment): “When you think a particular book is important, you’re messianic about it. You won’t stop.”
In 1997, Mark was having dinner with his friend David Pogue, author of “Macs for Dummies,” when David said it might be fun to work on a book together. Since Mark knew nothing about computers, they settled on writing a book about the only subject they had in common: magic. Both Mark and David were amateur magicians. They created “Magic for Dummies,” and Mark got the bug for bookwriting.
Mark’s next effort was solo: “Accidental Genius: Revolutionize Your Thinking Through Private Writing.” Lots of luminaries loved it: Tom Peters, Ray Bradbury, Al Ries, Jay Conrad Levinson, and Ace Greenberg. Mark did a publicity stunt for the book (freewriting for the public for four consecutive hours in the window of America’s largest bookstore), which did wonders for its sales. To date, it’s been translated into ten languages.
(By the way, did you know that certain American phrases don’t translate well into other languages? It’s true. None of the translators could make sense of the phrase “Accidental Genius.” The Spanish changed the book’s title to “Writing and Creativity.” The Germans called it “Genius Moments.” But the Japanese version is Mark’s favorite: “Everything Will Go Well As You Write And Thi
