Lakes, Rivers, Oceans

Menacing waves, strong currents, surfaces as smooth as glass: everything is always in flux. Across the ages, artists have been fascinated by the depiction of water. The portrayal of the flowing, impermanent nature of this element is an artistic challenge. It can also be charged with symbolism. The pictures of diverse bodies of water vary accordingly from calm to danger.
