Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Throughout history, individuals have summoned their strength and abilities to overcome the suffering life has laid out for them. People have survived personal difficulties, natural disasters, wars, dictatorships, poverty, hunger and much more. The fortunate are only faced with as much as they can handle, or less. They sail through rough times and emerge stronger.
However, sometimes the less fortunate are assaulted with more than they have the ability to withstand. Like an old monument that once stood strong and proud but has crumbled beneath the onslaught of time and neglect, they begin to surrender to their circumstances and fate.
‘Surrender’ depicts one such individual who has suffered to the point of exhaustion. Even at that stage he wraps his arms around himself in a last gesture of self-preservation. Therein lies the beauty of the human spirit – when we reach the limit of our physical and mental strength, we still seek to protect our inner core – that last vestige of feeling or dignity that makes us human.
