David Howard and Darryl Rodgers are two artists originally from Brisbane, who studied together at the Queensland College of Art. Their most recent exhibition will be shown at Juggler’s Art Space opening Friday 9th October and running until Wednesday 21st October.

Both artists have been exploring the concept of Numinous for a number of years, which questions the spiritual worlds and the metaphysical; specifically it is the impact they have on material reality that interests the artists most.

This exhibit combines two distinctly different but complimentary explorations of spiritual and material dualities.

Around the outside of the space, echoing the form of a sacred temple, sit Howard’s paintings. This series called Apostasy seeks to question the flailing loss and disconnection of spirit, body and soul in todays digitally ‘connected’ world.

At the centre of the space, with a nod to an inner sanctuary of contemplation, stands Roger’s four channel work entitled Sehnsucht. Sehnsucht is a German word that speaks to the sense that somewhere in an alternate reality there is something deeply longed for; a sense of home beyond the here and now. The experience is one of such significance that ordinary reality pales in comparison. The video based holographic/peppers ghost installation challenges perception, educes longing and evokes the mystery.

The opening night event for Numinous-i will occur from 6-9pm at Jugglers Art Space Inc – 103 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley. Exhibition continues till 21st October. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1706370872916274/ for more information.
