fake expressions of the unknown
An acrylic painting on canvas 55cm X 55cm
I find it interesting that this follows the “Song of Bareness”. 😉
For me, there is an awful lot of numinousity in this piece, on a number of levels. There is the belly button of Gaia, dove-like motifs, the narrow birth canal, the sense of being in a passage between two shores, and the use of blue-green (earth from space?), that make it a rather ebulliant image. It’s light and yet liminal.
I think you got it!!
Also thanks for teaching me a new word…
1. of, pertaining to, or like a numen; spiritual or supernatural.
2. surpassing comprehension or understanding; mysterious: that element in artistic expression that remains numinous.
I like this “layman’s” definition:
“the intense feeling of unknowingly knowing that there is something which cannot be seen.”
Let me be bold enough to suggest just that in the Hebrews 11 passage, if we can wrest it back from the “Faith” movements:
“Faith is the substance of things not seen, the evidence of things hoped for.”
