A STUDY OF LIMINALITY, 2020
These works were created after the first wave of Covid lockdown.
Responding to the shockwaves of disruption echoed through 2020
likened to an enormous pendulum swing creating a liminal space in-between.
This animated sequence of two drawings ‘The Creative’ and ‘The Receptive’
are representative of the polarities of opposite forces
that we endeavor to bring into balance for our own equilibrium.
The quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in uncertain transitional times
allows for social hierarchies to be reversed or temporarily dissolved
and future outcomes once taken for granted may be thrown into doubt.
The dissolution of order during liminality creates a fluid,
malleable situation that enables new ways of being and customs to become established.
