Fight or Flight

  • Art Therapy Institute 200 N Greensboro St D-6 Carrboro, NC 27510 (map)

Fight Or Flight features a collection of paintings and sculptures exploring the impact of anxiety and trauma on female identity. Presentations of the human figure are created and distorted in examination of the dissonance between the female psyche and external patriarchal culture. Through the use of clay and fiber, the malleable connections between the physical and the psychological are illustrated in the contrast of hard and soft material. The resulting explorations of mind, body, and healing evoke personal narratives in psychologically charged environments, questioning our perception of subjective reality.
