FORTITUDE

Acrylic on Canvas 80x120cm

Out of the four cardinal virtues, fortitude is the one that champions the endurability and fearlessness of the human spirit. It is a virtue that enables a person to stand up against and confront the hardships of life, to restrain fear and to not let it control one’s reasoning and empathy. Fortitude is also a virtue that encourages to embrace fear, harness its energy for one’s own advantage, as it is fear that gives one the drive to survive and thrive.

 

We see a girl in a loving embrace with a lion, as it meets our gaze with searing eyes in this oeuvre. The girl is wrapped in an intricate pattern of colors indicating her brave and unabashed spirit. She has a hand wrapped around a creature feared by many, as if to signify that she is in peace with her fears and they do not control her anymore. She is the one in control. As the lion stares at us, it poses us with a question: are we letting fear control our lives or are we ready to nuzzle up against our fears and take charge?
