Fight or Flight

 

In this series I am exploring how people react to the changes in their environment that can cause external pressures and internal struggles. I use birds as surrogates to portray these human conditions. Species are selected based on their natural behaviors and symbolic associations to cultural beliefs.  Each painting depicts the point in time when the event of change begins, leaving the bird’s fate unclear. I invite the viewer to participate in the story by considering bird’s fate.
