In Hoc Signo Vinces (You'll Win Under this Sign)

A human being
is a unique being,
single and unrepeatable.
Work hard at fulfilling yourself.
With courage,
mark out in your life
irreversible red cross,
and keep going, erect,
along your marvelous path.
Learn to be alone
and keep yourself company.
Let your mind listen and absorb.
Let the most dazzling secret salt of the earth
penetrate you.
Demand intransigence, rigorous verticality.
Don't be afraid of facing the unknown,
and with violent desire
say YES to life.

Bettina Werner

"The red and white “x “ symbol paintings are about the ability of crossing out obstacles in our path and going on. It was my inspiration of the vision of the Roman Emperor Constantine in which he encourages us to have the fortitude to overcome our fears before a battle and to march forward no matter what the obstacles may be in our way. My “In Hoc Signo Vinces ( in this sign you will conquer) “ paintings represent my deep rooted belief in my life’s dedication about human beings learning to be alone, working hard to fulfill one’s self. It’s about not being afraid of facing the unknown and feeling a violent desire saying YES to life, to keep going ahead on the dazzling salt of the earth pathway that has been presented to us and in this way finally conquering all"...
