Blair Chivers is a Canadian artist whose work explores power; particularly the power of the mind and emotion. For Chivers, engaging with art can stimulate ideas, broaden perspectives, and increase our sense of possibility. The words and imagery that Chivers uses are designed to inspire contemplation. “Life is Great”. “What you feel most you attract”. “Never never never give up”. “You’ll see it when you believe it”. One key to understanding the power of the creative mind lies not in the meaning of the words but in how they feel and resonate. Chivers’ art doesn’t aim to shift the viewer’s mood, but rather to offer the opportunity to engage with art while feeling good. That’s playing with power! Art can be an effective amplifier, but the source of the power lies within the viewer.
From white flags for peace to the black flag of pirates, and the rainbow flag for pride, in the folds of the flag there is an almost magical power. From the legendary and conquering flags of history books to the Stars and Stripes planted on the moon, they move with the command of icons and trophies. One of the oldest forms of media in the world, the flag now occupies a renewed place in public space. This is increasingly true in virtual public and online social networks. As a new media, it invites us to raise our heads to the sky. The flags of artists have become vectors of communication.
