About the Artist:
Nona Limmen (35) summons brooding and arcane forces from deep within her subconscious and binds them to film and digital images, these snapshots of menace, mystery and magick snatched from the boiling mists of eternity and suspended in the real so that we may wonder at their dark beauty. Drawing upon various strains of European folklore and a lifelong passion for the odd and the occult, Nona casts a web of pure visual spider-silk, pulling the viewer into her intoxicating world of pagan priestesses, vampire queens and blood-drenched shapeshifters. Her haunting photos capture them as they dance along the borders between our world and theirs. Perhaps, if you approach with just the right offering, one of them might grant you a glimpse or even passage into their realm, part dream and part nightmare. But don’t count on coming back.
