AMOR FATI

 
 

Artist statement from Emily Linstrom:

 Amor fati is a Latin phrase that loosely translates as "love of one's fate." It was not always so. There was a time when fate was a daemon riding my back, or else an explosion of prosperity I waited for, watched out for. It was a threat, it was a promise, it was a line carved into my palm. One day I took hold of it with both hands and wrung its pretty neck: I seized and shaped it, gave it Da Vinci wings, and said "Look here, little darlin. We're in this together, until we are not. Here is what I want you to do." I cranked it up and let it fly. I will it to stay aloft.
