In the introduction to the catalogue, Sandra Starr states, "Cornell is first and foremost a metaphysical scientist and religious philosopher who used art as a means rather than an aesthetic end." The book includes in depth analyses of individual pieces and groups of work accompanied by illustrations of the art and supporting context. This is an exploration of Cornell's practice as a realist, exploring not dream, fantasy, the subconscious, but the depths of reality including the spiritual dimension.
