In this series of abstract paintings, Michael Chapus asks the question: How could inner workings of the body be expressed visually? This question arose during a visit to the hospital, while observing the electro cardiogram displaying the vital signs in slow moving waves. Those fleeting images, being electronic impulses without representable form, non-phenomenal or noumenal, can only be grasped with the faculties of the mind. We might say we can think of it without being able to have references to abstract ideas. The term noumenon is set in contrast with or concerning the term phenomenon, which refers to anything that can be apprehended by or is an object of the senses.
