In the "In-Between" Part II: 10 Liminal II artists delve into what's at the the center of it all

"This theme, liminal caught my attention because it made me think about liminal space which is a little like being in limbo. To me, it’s like that uncomfortable feeling between what “is” right now and what is to come. The discomfort and anticipation might be anywhere within the range of excitement or fear for what the future holds."

"I was attracted to the Liminal theme because I spend a lot of time trying to find subjects on the other side of something. Transparent or semitransparent glass or plastic is precisely in the space between. When I learned of the theme, my efforts felt tailored to your call.

The filters created by glass or plastic are fascinating. They distort and play with a subject, yet remain a visual reality. My efforts are aimed at capturing the very real liminality created by such barriers."

"Liminal is the transitional space you occupy as you move from one state to the next, where you walk an ephemeral, fleeting line with your feet simultaneously in both moments and in neither. It is a place of almost, of not quite, where I believe the most exciting work takes place."

"My abstract composite artwork entails digitally bending, breaking, and blending multiple photographs to create imaginary realms that blur the boundaries between "what is" and "what if." The art is designed to launch viewers into virtual realms of imagination—both mine and theirs. I often combine architectural, infrastructure, and technological images with human and natural elements. The resulting work is an invitation to explore alternative realities filled with mystery, suspense, and surprise as viewers navigate between the predictable and the unpredictable.

This composite consists of layered photos of ice embedded in a window screen.The artwork reveals the process of "metrovolution," a transition from inchoate elements to a city with a fully-articulated skyline. Each stage represents decreasing degrees of liminality as the urban environment unfolds."

The very nature of the medium exists in the "in-between", the liminal, and the process...

"Hand made scratch board using casein and India ink applied to Arches cover paper to start. When a stylus was applied to the scratch board, the casein flaked off the paper as the drawing progressed. All of the flakes were collected and put into a box as a work of art."

"In this place, a juniper died long ago.


The snag lives on, reaches upward and outward,


a bridge from desert to sky,


between the life once lived and that yet to come."

"Floating Rocks is a series of photographs made in response to both the beauty and the uncertainty of life in a liminal state. There can be calm in the moment, yet it coexists with uneasiness and the surreal. These past few years have often felt as if we were living indefinitely on a threshold between here and some as yet unrealized there."

Earl Grenville Killeen

"A liminal moment may tickle the spirit with possibilities. In my paintings, I hope to share my bemusement at the sense that there is more expanse and greater depth than we can see; that things that seem to be in stasis or in flux may be on the verge of changing; and that some things that our eyes may receive as plausible strike our understanding as, at best, improbable."

The very nature of the medium exists in the "in-between", the liminal, and the process...

"52 rolls of toilet paper printed with social media comments and news headlines that document each day of the first year of the pandemic. The size of the font correlates with the number of deaths for that day."

Darlene Podpolucki

"I am inspired by the world and nature its self, I create imagery and sensations of joy, color, movement and harmony. My work has been described as imaginative, playful and filled with energy and hope. Preferring to deliver a positive emotion I let the experience of creating guide me. I try to become one with the art piece by being technically, intellectually and spiritually inspired by using various media and materials to help create a dialog with the viewer."
