Trina Collins (Poncho Army is her pseudonym) had put together a series of colourful and beautifully detailed pieces during a 12 month artist in residence program at the gallery. I spent over an hour looking at the show and the only way I could have been more impressed on site is if I had known that she managed to combine water-based ink over solvent based aerosol to make each piece. A nearly impossible challenge I can relate to as an artist working to merge three-dimensional sculptures into two-dimensional spaces.
"The works center on themes such as feelings of claustrophobia in an increasingly controlled society, the nightmare of being forgotten and abandoned, and the relief of finding community and of being found." -Poncho Army
I highly recommend a visit to her website to see the rest of the Fight or Flight show here:
