In the Liminal
Click to enlarge
In 2017, I felt a profound sense of liminality, the overwhelming feeling of our precarious and brief time on the Earth as the human species. I found relief in the idea of Deep Time, in the knowledge that nature has always created and supported life, for over 4.5 billion years. I feel compelled to express this perspective, following the oceanic beginnings of our ancestors and the primordial sense of nature, to the feeling of being human on Earth. I find relief in the realization that behind destruction is creation, that we are constantly evolving our consciousness, and that all life is interrelated. This work is created using an alternative analog process which brings an alchemical spirit to the prints, perhaps expressing the elements of the planet in transformed yet raw form. Presented with mounting uncertainty, the images continue to unfold as there is an increasingly intense feeling of liminality among the collective.
