Victus Ex Nihilo II is an artwork created from one photograph that was taken in Tallinn, Estonia during the Summer of 2018. The original photograph was taken nearby a forsaken quarry, the Rummu Quarry. The name "Victus Ex Nihilo II" was given to this artwork. It resembles unseen defeat, and seeking inner strength in order to overcome it.

When captured by fear, we may find ourselves immobilized. Steps get stuck in the past while time passes on. Yet, when we seek out inner-strength, paralysis may be defeated once the past has been forgiven.

Personal:
It has been 2 years now when my life turned into shattered pieces. The bubble that I was living in was a mere illusion that I hold so dearly close to me. Time stood still, life was a constant battle. In these two years, I was picking up the pieces, deceived as I was, when almost giving up it turned around realizing that I have already come so far.

---
I'm flying in the skies, in disguise
stuck in a maze of clouds that made me realize
you can't face truth, without seeing the real lies.

I'm sitting still, trying to count the hours
thinking while I take endless showers
to turn seeds in my head, into flawless flowers.

Live, and grow.
