We are born and are powerful because in our relationships and connections, communications and contacts, we exercise that special force/energy with which all of us, without exception, come into this world.
For some, Power is skill, for others, command or willpower, even persuasion. But for most, Power is control, either over others or themselves.
But Power has managed to overcome the force that begot it as Power incorporates yet another kind of energy. Force is material, physical, and dissipates itself when reason arrives. However, the only way to lose Power is when one ceases to be. The opposite of Power is weakness
We can win through the use of force but through Power we always win. This is why there is no other way to relate but through Power because when you come closer, when you embrace or depend, join or participate, force and command, obey, demand or simply commit yourself, you are already being and feeling powerful.
Force is physical, Power is intellectual.
By making Art and putting together this book, we have chosen our way to relate to Power. All prints included illustrate different aspects of The Relationships of Power in its various dimensions: the power of the mind, willpower, financial, military, economic power, the power of authority, social power, physical or mystical …
After all Power is a natural condition.
