"Per Ascensum Invenīemus Libertatem"
Through ascension, we will find freedom.
As a second part to the earlier piece in the Real Thoughts exhibition , "Let Them Eat Crypto", this work acts as the antithesis to the crisis we see in front of us around the world. We must rise, both spiritually and societally in order to truly find freedom and create global stability.
The composition purposefully reflects a similar layout as "Let Them Eat Crypto", specifically the tall rectangular focal point, main figure, and those looking on. In contrast to the first work, Ascensum is more positive in nature, and pushes a narrative of social and environmental harmony through ascension.
