Mary Quin MFA Thesis Exhibition

There is a space between what we feel and what we see that can easily go unnoticed.  Liminal in nature, it is that threshold of sense experience just between feeling something and feeling nothing at all.  Often our true inner sense of family relationships is a word or breath away, elusively floating somewhere in the ether of our experience—slightly beyond articulation of our feelings and often detached from what we expect to experience.   By apposing family members, juxtaposing relationships, both real and imagined, and incorporating reflective surfaces, I seek to explore the psychological complexities of visually portraying non-physical space.  In this space, I believe, can be found the constant divide between the way two family members see a situation or each other.  With my imagery, I strive to recognize and acknowledge the infinite substance that fills the empty space within one or between two family members.
