Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in Loveland to Present Liminal: I Was. I Am. I Will Be.

Exterior of the Loveland Museum of Arts and Culture

Artworks Center for Contemporary Art is pleased to present Liminal: I was. I am. I will be., new work by Abbie Powell.


Liminal is a space of transition. I am fully in that space. And if we are all honest with ourselves, we are all in that space: deciding what feeds the soul, letting go of that which does not feed our souls.


I feel as if the way the foothills pile up on themselves, each layer revealing and hiding a new reality every day, shows an intense generosity. I lose myself daily in the beauty of that landscape. This body of work captures my interpretation of that changing, elusive space, a space that is the transition point between the flatlands of the prairie of my youth, and the soaring heights of the mountaintops that represent the life I choose to fashion for myself moving forward.


I was. I am. I will be.


Abbie R Powers is an installation, performance, and video artist working in silk, mixed media, the female figure, movement, and video projection. Hand-dyed expanses of silk reference the sublimity of the natural world, the intimacy of the figure, and the evanescence of our breath. The figure communicates through modern dance movement while digital video approaches the deeper conversation about what it means to be human.
