Law 48, Gerald Carlton

This picture highlights the importance of the way in which it is important to be versatile in life because of the fact that there is very little we are actually able to control.

Law 48 is a reference to the forty-eighth law of power in the seminal book the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene which speaks of the importance of assuming formlessness to lessen the possible attacks that may be fielded on multiple fronts by one’s adversaries in the cutthroat capitalistic world that we live in.

In an artistic context it also assuages us that sometimes we may have to be able to abandon preconceived beliefs that we may have held for long periods of time which prevent us from being able to access new opportunities that may help us unlock and experience more growth in our lives.
