Numinous will be on view until 20th May 2016.

The term 'numinous' refers to spiritual emanation and denotes a mystical and mysterious presence,

underlying the material plane of existence. The 'Numinous' is that which is awe-inspiring and transcendent.

Leon Mahony's graphic illustrations are an interpretation

of his interest in words, pictures and the archaic origins of symbology.

His art-making explores evolutionary links to primordial experience.

He uses the digital tools that our current technology provides

to extend the boundaries of imagination, mythic memory and creative expression.
