Vulnerability | Series
“Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
- Brené Brown
The genesis of Vulnerability lies in contemplations on the fragile nature of existence, with nature's light serving as the artist's perennial muse. As Ancog gazes upon sunsets and engages in meditation, he is reminded of the preciousness of life's intangible treasures, their potential to slip away at any given moment. Surrendering to this realisation, Ancog steadfastly embraces love, courage, resilience, and hope in a world that can often feel cynical and brooding. He places trust in these values, knowing that they will cultivate authentic and meaningful connections that enrich his life.
Ancog's Vulnerability series warmly portrays the intricate tapestry of complex emotions, offering a glimpse into the enigmatic facets of the human condition. These artworks remind us that vulnerability necessitates taking risks, such as wholeheartedly embracing life even in the absence of guarantees. Ultimately, they invite deep contemplation on the profound importance of the things that truly matter in our lives and inspire us to embrace gratitude and joy in their presence.
