About this artwork

This picture belongs to a group of pictures in which the painter has dealt with the phenomenon of Indian worship in literature and film in Germany. This began with the observation that from the 1960s onwards Indian films had cult status in both German states and had burned themselves into the collective memory of the viewer's genres, similar to the classic superheroes in comics.
Fight or Flight" is also about movement. The picture is intended to give the viewer the feeling of what it feels like when a rider gallops past him very close. So close that one only perceives part of the picture and is overwhelmed by the earthquake of the earth, the drumming of the hooves and the pure power and speed.
