This image ‘The Transcendence Of The Son Of Man’ or ‘Fili Homnis Quod Est Transcendetiam’ was basically made to poke some fun at the ludicrous ideas and notions that were flying around in the 70’s that Jesus Christ was an emissary of a race of people from an alien civilization/culture. The theories tend to centre on the idea that the Roman Empire had got completely out of control, which led to the death of Jesus, and then these aliens decided to try to terminate the human race as vengeance. In the Ridley Scott movie Prometheus, the Engineer Alien who has awoken from 2000 years of sleep decides that he has to go and finish the job that his people had started and renew the quest to exterminate the human civilisation completely. These ideas I find hilarious yet at the same time quite intriguing, in a purely creative and faith-based sense. The 70’s was blessed with a sea of authors that merged science fact with science fiction. Erich Von Daniken and Gerhard R. Steinhäuser were some of the best of them, yet even they were heavily influenced still further by the Daddies of the wackies, George Adamski and Eduard Albert Meier. These latter two were supposed contactees for extra-terrestrials during the 1950s, 60's and 70's in Switzerland: their aliens came from places like the planet Venus in their wonderful flying saucers. Adamski and Meier were also, supposedly, the aliens' first ports of call and they had hundreds of photos and film footage to offer as proof. They both supposedly received information from these aliens that claimed that Jesus was an Alien Master Supreme and that He had originally incarnated on the planet Earth thousands of years ago and that He was also the very first astronaut. Ridley Scott played with and tried to expand on these themes about Jesus Christ being created by extra-terrestrials in his movie Prometheus and claiming that Jesus Christ is a character born out of folklore, myth and legend. I’ve mixed, sourced and merged various images, the wacky ideas and fantasies to recreate a post-modern tableau, in order to convey an overwhelming sense and feeling of the familiar. In paying homage to the Iconographyic style of portrait and Acheiropoieta ("not made with human hand") systems and techniques of the classic Roman Catholic and Orthodox Catholic Icon school traditions I present ‘The Transcendence Of The Son Of Man’ or ‘Fili Homnis Quod Est Transcendetiam’. Amen and peace to all.

For the curious. The Latin titles are not "strict" Latin, nor are the English equivalents strict translations. Inspired by the very important place of Latin in the Catholic faith and Christian tradition, and the halcyonic connotations which this has, the images of Immaculata Cosmica go beyond the "this means this" of much language and translation. Rather, the titles are interpretations, isolated works in themselves, yet referring to the collages in terms of what has deemed gone before coupled with the reality of change in life, yet belonging to the now-ness in an eternal faith, tradition and language that can never change. Together the words and collages reflect on being a Roman Catholic Christian in a post-modern society and in it's wider world and context.

Thank you Olga, The website primarily serves as a viewing gallery. However if there is an interest in buying the pieces as original artworks or prints then I'm willing to negotiate, privately.

Love the collages! Especially “The Transcendence Of The Son Of Man”. I'd be interested in a print, would be nice to see an online shop, I'd like to know what sort of price range they would be. -Olga
