Description of the RA's Gallery VII's hang below:

In the second of the print galleries, Rebecca Salter RA surrounds us with people, animals and the places they occupy. As we investigate the works, we become tourists and voyeurs. We are drawn into the privacy of individual rooms and we surreptitiously look out through doorways or windows. In some of these works, we see tumbledown buildings and slow decay; in others we find industry, energy and new possibility – building sites, gas rigs and commuters hurrying to work. But the world we occupy is natural as well as urban. In this room, we encounter forces of nature, as well as the importance of our relationships with animals.
