The group of "Liminals” show abstract light and dark traces of pigments on paper.
“Liminality”, a term coined by the ethnologist, Victor Turner, refers to a state in which individuals or groups find themselves when they have
ritually dissolved themselves from the dominant social order [...] During the liminal phase, the individuals find themselves in an ambivalent
state. The taxonomies of (everyday) social structure have been suspended. In a kind of limbo, individuals have neither the qualities of their
previous state nor those of their condition to be. The title refers to the process involved in developing these works.
Cadilhon creates seemingly immaterial zones of darkness and shade by repeatedly blowing layers of pigments across the surface of the paper.
This gives rise to the lighter section in the middle of the sheet and the progressive darkening toward the periphery with attendant fluid transitions.
The shades of grey oscillate between an absolute black and a pure white. The sheet's two-dimensional surface dissolves due to the scaling of
brightness across the paper and is transformed into a seemingly domed, three-dimensional form, the inner core of which rises to the surface
like a pale, luminescent orb.
