Notes on liminality and the in-between

unitited (exchange of breaths)/150*150

I breathe in and out. The starting point is the uncontrollable in the present. The connection between the breath, the body and the psyche represents both presence and absence. A notion of something moving out of the painting, like the line, that exists both within and outside the frame. At a balance point between intuitive and conscious gestures, the line exists in a natural space between presence and absence, between the visible and the invisible. Its perspective then gives me the opportunity to further define my painting process. It is the power of rawness, as in the breath. The line, a pure energy that moves physically in and out of the harmonious balancing points within the painting itself. The painting requires a physical point of view beyond the conditions of the frame, beyond a visual grammar,  and contains therefore a spatial presence in the room. This physical presence is a reflection of one's own vulnerability. Breathing.

How can we define the possibilities and openings of the abstract in-between space? Something beyond ourselves, and a dissolving of boundaries between color, shape and line. The painting requires a physical point of view beyond the conditions of the frame, questioning its own spatial conditions within the space it exists . This physical presence is a reflection of one's own vulnerability, this fragile encounter between something that disappears, but which is also eternal; the personal dialogue in the encounter with the universal. The stones on which the painting stands demand their natural place, the indefinable in all of us, and the physical encounter with the present. There is a physical gravity in our human existence, reflecting the painting's connection between an intangible place and the surrounding space.
