Joe Lucas Bio:

Joe grew up hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. He had the opportunity to develop his latent interest in wildlife and outdoor photography while living in Alaska where presentations requiring photos were a large part of his work responsibilities.  His retirement and relocation to Littleton Colorado has allowed him to focus on outdoor photography, which he enjoys sharing with others.  His photos can be viewed at lucas-photos.com.

Growing up Joe Lucas and Mary Sue Suit were instilled with a love of nature and the learned satisfaction of creating something by a father who was a by profession a forester and by craft a fine cabinet maker and a mother of endless interests and talent.

I Feel the Space Where You Are Not

 

NO LONGER, NOT YET

SYDNIE WALDRON HASTINGS COLLEGE OF FINE ART SENIOR STUDENT

JUNE 14 - JULY 23

My recent work explores "liminality" and liminal spaces in regards to the physical body. These bodies begin to morph as a result of the things around them. Events. Places. People. Liminal spaces lie at the threshold between two or more things, places, ways of being, or moments in time. They stand as doorways and passages, and are characterized by feelings of strange familiarity in combination with the feeling that there is something missing. They are spaces where you have left something behind, but you are not fully in something else, or perpetual states of being between more or less stable planes of existence. Because they are caught in between unstable phases of being, the bodies begin to morph and shift between their own physical states. In my recent discoveries, I have found that the spaces, experiences, and bodies I am exploring are characterized by three distinct phases, all different, and all imperative. The first is separation, wherein we are torn from the identity, place, or way of being we understood. Separation is followed by transition, which is what characterizes the liminal being. It establishes the being as bordering on two things, not fitting completely into either. The final stage is return. Return is not quite as easily defined as the other stages, purely because there are no boundaries. Return is individual. It is shaped and molded by the one experiencing it. It is coming into one’s own, knowing that there is room for flux. For change. For instability. That even if none of the planes we exist on are entirely stable, existing in between is not as dangerous as we may think. The bodies exist in a constant flow between these three phases. What does it mean for the body to be liminal? For it to be stretched and molded by the environment that envelopes it? Can our own ways of being be liminal? How do we continue to exist in unstable phases? The creatures and beings that are born through this body of work are seeking the answers to these questions, and hoping that through each other, they might find the answer
