Artist J.M. Carnright brings fossils that are millions of years old back to life — figuratively speaking — in his new exhibit Primitive Futurisms, now on display at Mystical Parlors in Norwalk. He incorporates the fossils into his wood sculptures, as well as stones, raw gems, meteorites and other remnants of time. Upon viewing, these theoretical and aesthetic expressions of the past can have a direct influence on one's future.
