Statement from David Hurn on the back of print “Tintern Forest. Tintern. Wales. G.B. 1976”
“Solidarity: We are at the edge of change, we must all engage. I am not a writer, others have expressed it better:
‘He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.’
‘The time is always right to do what is right’
So said Martin Luther King Jr..”
