Wandering Oil on wood

Wandering
Oil on wood
42cm x 59,5cm

This work is about the old Kempton Park abandoned and haunted hospital. I was fascinated by the hospital as it was abandoned 20 years ago without a trace as to why it happened. There are patient files and x-rays that still haunt the shelves and hospital equipment which still stands forgotten.

Photo albums are arranged as if to tell life stories and testimonies and build identities, however, the image is never ‘complete’ – we are only presented with visual clues that allow our own imagination to further ‘complete’ the story.
