New year, new Cambridge Art Association’s new show, “Liminal Spaces.” This one is all about spaces in between and what it means to belong to two paradigms at a time. My first piece in this show, “Diffusion,” focuses on travel as a time of transition, capturing the frantic bustle of New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
The second piece, “Interlude,” is a composite of a subway stop in Boston and a train station in Chicago. The artwork focuses on the loneliness of liminal space. A sole traveler waiting for the train feels unconnected from the world at large, waiting to reach his or her destination. I like the contrast between the frantic atmosphere in the first piece and the pensive mood of the second.
“Liminal Spaces” runs from January 21st through February 15th at Cambridge College Town Common Gallery (500 Rutherford Ave.) in Charlestown.
