Liminal Space: Doug Land, Gray Rainbow

June 18 to 30, 2022

Location: 3317 West 4th Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76107 Hours: daylight

Artist, Doug Land incorporates interior and exterior for his seriously playful installation, Gray Rainbow by thoughtfully enlisting the given nature of Blind Alley. As Land states, “An array of clouds glimmer on a navy-blue bedsheet. The cloth floats suspended behind a pane of glass. That with no substance enters where there’s no space. A momentary reflection from a street sign creates a meeting of two spaces. The inner space of a gallery is connected to the chaos of the outside by light. Then the sun shifts, and the clouded bedsheet returns to its confinement.”

Doug Land. was raised in the woods south of Dallas. He received a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design, and recently completed an MFA at Texas Christian University. Gardening was once a youthful pastime spent with his grandmother, but as greenspaces have become more rare, Land. felt a strong need to cultivate art in conversation with the outdoor experience.
