Numen, from the Latin to ‘nod’. Used in Ancient Rome to describe the spiritual force in inanimate objects, places or awe inspiring phenomena. Such places were thought to contain divine power or will, defined by its ability to consent (or nod). In our industrialised and technological world (esp. in cities) we are no longer surrounded by numen (or have lost our ability to perceive it), which is, in part, responsible for our deep sense of alienation.
Originally from New Zealand, I now live on the Isle of Man.
My collages primarily concern the human condition, with reference to psychology, religion, philosophy, history, pop-culture and more.
My paintings are primarily abstract and explore the beauty of color and form and my love of intricate detail.
