Winnipeg, Manitoba – March 28, 2013 – With a career spanning 40 years Tom Lovatt is one of Winnipeg’s best-known figurative artists. Lovatt’s new exhibit Fight takes his work to places many have not yet witnessed. It contains paintings and many un-divulged drawings of boxers and mixed martial artists in contest. Fight reflects the internal conversations Lovatt has confronted about perceptions of male identity. Fight opens Friday, April 5th at 7:00 P.M. and the exhibit continues to April 27th at Gurevich Fine Art.
Lovatt observes that boxing and mixed martial arts is a major part of the entertainment industry. He is fascinated with masculine archetypes and their portrayal in the media. Lovatt questions, “Do I fight because I'm a man? Or am I a man only when I fight?”
Fight provokes discomforting revelations about our perceptions of “masculinity” by confronting the viewer with images of blood sport. Adding to this interesting question is the beauty of Lovatt’s painting technique.
