"Liminal Spaces"4.13 - 5.18.24. Conduit Gallery, Dallas, TX. 

Carson Monahan’s latest body of work, “Liminal Spaces”, is a journey through the intersections of emotional turmoil and temporal uncertainty. Through a series of captivating paintings, Monahan explores transitional atmospheres, inviting us to peer through windows into liminal states where the boundaries of existence blur. In “Liminal Spaces” themes of destruction, paranoia, and chance intertwine with echoes of Greek mythology and poignant grace, creating a rich tapestry of human experience. Through surreal imagery and ephemeral beauty, Monahan constructs a narrative that resonates with nostalgia and transition, beckoning contemplation of the fragility of life. Within these paintings, individuals are depicted with haunted gazes or seemingly ensnared in surroundings suffused with existential dread. Yet amidst the turmoil, there is a palpable sense of chance- a glimmer of hope amidst the uncertainty, as if serendipity whispers of tantalizing possibilities. Beyond serving as reminders of human vulnerability, Monahan’s works extend an invitation to find solace in the collective resilience of humanity. In the chaos of liminality, new pathways emerge, and the seeds of possibility take root, offering a beacon of hope amid the tumultuous journey of existence.
