Fortitude

‘Adversity introduces a man to himself’ – Albert Einstein
In this work Dyson celebrates the power and the strength of the human mind. Reflecting on personal transformative life events, she believes experiences help us grow as human beings, and amplify our existence. She sees adversity as a catalyst for self-growth – for developing inner-strength and fortitude.

The striking scale and depth of the blue sphere on white background simultaneously radiates power and strength, and calm, peace, and serenity. It has a stillness and a meditative quality, imbuing a sense of spiritual connectedness – a connectedness to the universe.
