Today, I’m still reeling from the impact of the stunning Walhalla exhibition by Anselm Kiefer at the White Cube Gallery, Bermondsey, on until next weekend, 12 February 2017.
I’ve posted, below, some of the photos we took. Please excuse the imperfections of our iPhone photography for all but the image immediately below – that one is from PR images, courtesy of the White Cube Gallery. These huge works of art are just so magnificent in scope, scale and technique that it’s hard to convey their impact verbally.
As I wheeled about, I felt as if I were looking at the almost ghostly aftermath of the death and devastation of a civilisation – possibly ours with the greyed out remnants and remains of lives lost, destroyed buildings, landscape ravaged.
Yet even with the klaxons warning to beware of where, and how, we live our lives, we see evidence that indicates endurance, the possibility of survival, of ongoing life, through the glory of nature’s vibrant colour seeping across and about the wreckage wrought, resilient and hopeful for some kind of future beyond the chaos.

I urge you to catch it if you can and I’d love to hear any feedback on it.
