IMAGINARY REALMS:
THE VISUAL LANGUAGE OF STONES AND CRYSTALS

By George Fellner

Stone Insights Books
East Haddam, Connecticut
2016

SUMMARY

Stones and crystals have enabled a fascination for mankind throughout the ages. Perhaps there is a visual language, hidden for eons within the Earth that can be discovered and expressed through a creative process using macro photography. Forms and compositions with juxtaposed colors, tones, and textures offer an abundant diversity for evocative images and inspirational meanings. The 77 abstract expressionist images in this collection involve points of departure encompassing the natural sciences, multi-cultures, history, mythology, astronomy, spirituality, philosophy, fantasy, and future dreams. Serving as catalysts, they inspire the reader to experience personal visual explorations and interpretations with unlimited potential. The intent is to invigorate the imagination and to evoke concepts, emotions, and messages with the propensity to traverse space, time, and dimension. Imaginary Realms: The Visual Language of Stones and Crystals offers an experience that can enlighten the spirit with an appreciation of the natural world, along with potentially generating new insights and universal truths.

REVIEW

George Fellner is an accomplished visual poet; his lyrical abstract photographic imagery is full of metaphor and illustrious plays of light and shade.  There is a consistent fluidity of form and color in each composition ranging from subtle to dramatic.
