The Forests, Rocks, Torrents exhibition at the National Gallery this summer was a truly inspiring exhibition.
The exhibition gathered together scenes from Norwegian and Swiss landscapes, depicting the inhospitable places we choose to live in. These are the places we call home. Where we desperately try to make a place for yourself.
“Liberty requires opportunity to make a living – a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives a man not only enough to live by, but something to live for” (Franklin D. Roosevelt).
These landscapes are idyllic and you could easily get carried away and think that you’re living the dream. And suddenly, you’re at the mercy of the elements.
