Fight or Flight is an art exhibition that speaks about the global times we are in. The struggle of the psychological as well as a biological instinct within one intermixed feeling. Each artist undertook the challenge of applying this theme within a curated format.
This collection presents an array of art perspectives: from the narratives seen in Adrian Williams and Beth Pederson’s work, to the contextual work of Tom Cummins’, to the abstract expressionism in Tim Rechner and Craig Talbot’s art, to a comic reference in Rafael Sottolichio’s work — to the realism executed by Aaron Sidorenko. The exhibition adds new depth and meaning to a survival instinct inherent in us all.
The artist’s geographical location accentuates their unique perspective. I know this tension is derived from context: city, rural, Canadian. In this array, I envision an audience that will intermittely favour some works over others, just like the Fight or Flight instinct. By doing so, it creates the impetus for discussion around our survival instinct rooted deep within.
