"As the art world explores memory and nature continues to thrive in creative industries, the exploration of identity and pride that defines the Norwegian Romantic Nationalism movement has a renewed sociological relevance. So what is the role of nature and nostalgia in Norwegian art and can it really bring us closer to home?" @millyburroughs explores this in our feature referencing @karoline.hjorth & Riitta Ikonen's 'Eyes as Big as Plates' series. #EyesasBigasPlates
Graveyard Fields was one of my favorite stops on my trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This drawing is of the Lower Falls. According to the @nationalparkservice , Graveyard Fields got its name when a wind storm felled hundreds of spruce trees. The now moss-covered stumps look something like graves, hence the name Graveyard Fields (but that's just one theory of where the name comes from). We walked along the rocks and sat close to the base of the waterfall. The water was so clear, crisp, and chilled, I had never really seen anything like it before! Going outside, seeing these beautiful places, and getting to hike through nature has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Now, I finally have people to do it with - and lately, my dreams have seemed more attainable. I'll never forget this trip, and will always remember what it did to kickstart my journey. More drawings and information to come! This is also my first attempt at a drawing like this one, and, though it's a little rough, I'm liking where it's going.
