Kieran Forster (aka Algernon Eldritch)

It’s fairly obvious that I have a thematic preoccupation with “energy fields”. As several people have implied in their comments, what am I on about here?  In our emotional lives, in our scientific discourses and in our colloquialisms, we are immersed in the concept of the energy field.


In physics, every theory engages the concept of the field, whether it be gravitational, electromagnetic, or quantum fields. Ancient Chinese medicine speaks of energy fields or meridians of the body. We hear of auras and chakras whose fields interact. We have the fields into which our knowledge is divided. We have the field of dreams. We have countless metaphors that engage the power of the energy field. In my work, colours and form are a metaphorical language that attempts to understand our archetypal obsession with energy fields.
