I am honored to participate in:
An online exhibition curated by Jennifer Gillia Cutshall for
Verum Ultimum Art Gallery, Portland, OR
which tasked artists to define “Liminal” for this first edition of this exhibition.
Liminal is defined as
relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process.
occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.
One could argue that artists are conditioned to occupy the liminal state. And a successful studio is a space in flux, poised for adaptation (to projects, challenges, and materials). The focus of the artist is the creative process or the place between the 2 boundaries of “the beginning” and “the outcome or result.”
A gallery benefits from maintaining that liminal state, too (adaptation is a constant).
Verum Ultimum is celebrating it’s eighth year and this exhibition serves to herald the artists unique vision…especially during these challenging times!
“LIMINAL is the word that came to mind when I considered the past year into now. A time of uncertainty, anxiety, the in-between, and also, of possibility. Transition.” Debra Disman
