The term ‘numinous’ is used to describe something that has a spiritual or religious quality, reflecting the presence of divinity. In Numinous-i, artists David Howard and Darryl Rogers explore spirituality in its duality with the material, with an approach that sees divinity in quantum theory as much as religion.
Darryl Rogers evokes mystery and the universal longing for an alternate reality in his work Sehnsucht, a four-channel video installation that acts as a grounding centerpiece to the exhibition space. Rogers’ holograms and projections are like ghosts of other possibilities — a haunting reminder of the impermanence of our existence. David Howard’s painting series Apostasy encircles Rogers’ work in a temple-like formation, questioning how today’s world of digital connectivity results in a disconnection of the spirit, body and mind.
Numinous-i opens at Jugglers Art Space on 9 October, continuing to 21 October.
