A Path of Knowledge in Pictures
In A Path of Knowledge in Pictures Gerhard Reisch brought together from his life’s work, 35 pictures which he saw as the essence of his creation. They ought to serve as companion and support for striving human beings in the new millennium. Their archetypal power will be evident to non-judgmental observation. Their reality goes far beyond ‘beauty’ or ‘ugliness’ as experienced on a personal level. The pictures encourage the human soul to bear the unavoidable loneliness of the individual path, a loneliness which, in the future, can grow to a conscious stand in the spirit.

Wesley Hallock (verified owner) –
So beautifully does the short prose and simple poetry of “A Path of Knowledge in Pictures” support its 35 accompanying art prints, the whole becomes like an alchemical marriage. Each element refines and clarifies the others, vivid testimony to the existence of a Higher Power at work within and through the artist. We learn in the foreword that an artistic creation was never the intent of artist Gerhard Reisch. Rather, Reisch wished for two things. First, to awaken imagination in the soul of the observer, and second, to establish the reality of a path for the spiritual seeker. And how well did Reisch succeed? For this reviewer, associations born of an innocent stolen peek at Reisch’s art (the purchase was intended as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law!) continue to swell and grow, relentless as a rising loaf of over-leavened bread. Reisch’s images are faithful to my own inner surety, telling me that both of us have known the beings and mind states that his images are intended to evoke. As a stimulus of Imagination and a welcome assurance that there is, indeed, a reliable route back to Source, I heartily recommend “A Path of Knowledge in Pictures.” I would buy it again–this time for myself!
