Artist Spotlight

George Fellner


    Artist Statement:

  • The methodology for Imaginary Realms involves the visual exploration of stones and crystals, surveying the juxtaposition of colors, tonal variations, and textures. Messages from the Earth sciences, astronomy, history, mythology, and multi-cultures provide potential points of departure. In turn, this is manifested as the shutter-click of a captured photographic vision. The intent is to present abstract expressionist images that can invigorate the mind of the observer, evoking concepts and dreams that may traverse space, time, and dimension. The unifying theme explores the search for universal insights along with the notion of matter/energy/mind/spirit transformations. Ultimately, there is the offered propensity for stimulating the observer’s curiosity and imagination.
