“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
? J.R.R Tolkien
From the word in its most literal form to abstractions reflecting upon internal and interpersonal struggle, the idea of war is one that evokes a deep, emotional response within all of us. For this reason, the concept was selected as the prompt for Slashthree’s milestone twentieth exhibition; a tour de force, featuring more than 60 beautifully crafted artistic interpretations of this concept in a variety of different media. Take a good, long look through the gallery; we think you’ll agree that “WAR” is one of the collective’s strongest exhibitions to date.
