About Rock, Feather, Plume
The exhibition features Mineer’s photographs of unique stones taken with a special lens and lights in an effort to view the essence of the other world that has been frozen in the quartz. After lifetimes of reaction, the minerals’ movement through the silica is captured and the stone we see today is a record of the passage of time. It is not just a window into another world, but into another time.
