Adelaide Tyrol says of her art: “My work often explores ideas and intuitions I have about the confluence of the natural world and the human enterprise. These thoughts propel me and keep me intellectually connected to current situations. But a painting, first and foremost, is a physical entity – a visual balancing act weighing light with dark, the accidental with the deliberate and specificity with ambiguity. A painting is formed by many things, but in the end, it is paint on panel. I believe that there is something inherent in this balancing act of materials and physical properties that has the potential to address deep and untethered areas of the mind. The title refers directly to the phrase that connotes overcoming anxiety. Anxiety whereby the brain releases adrenaline, the pupils dilate, the heart pumps out blood like an engine, and the body prepares itself to fight. Or just as likely…to flee.”
