What People Say About "ILLUMINATIONS The Geography of the Imagination" by Steven E. Counsell:

“With Steven Counsell’s work doors open into the living imagination and invite us to walk through with him into its autonomous creative expressive landscape.  And as we do the living question arises – what land have we entered?”
From the books Introduction by Monika Wikman, Ph.D. Tesuque, NM.  Jungian analyst & Author of PREGNANT DARKNESS: ALCHEMY AND THE REBIRTH OF CONSCIOUSNES

“It is exquisite.  I love the poetry and the images are wonderful…the material is so full of archetypal symbolism, so many references to the collective unconscious.  I enjoyed the poetry about aging, letting go.” 
Sondra Geller, Jungian Analyst, Chevy Chase MD.

Visionary Art Prints

RIPE, painting detail of varied textures

We feature the visionary and surrealistic art works of Steven E. Counsell in books and art prints.

 “What Is Art?”

Art needs to amaze us and draw us into its wonder.  Art should welcome us to enter the scene; to walk around the landscape, meet the personalities through their eyes, their posture, and physical tension; or, simply lead us to dream in the mysterious landscapes of another world.

How did we get our name Black Swan Editions?

Steven E. Counsell’s work is complex and symbolic. A large scrawling signature would be a distraction, therefore, Steve has chosen to use a Japanese chop in the form of a swan. The head and body form the “S” of his first name, Steven, and the wing is a “C” for his last name, Counsell.
