This series was produced between 2004-2006. Key influences are Edward Hopper’s alienating worlds of urban isolation and Magritte’s painting of 1954 ‘The Empire of Lights’ where life is seen to be in a delicate state of flux and transition. This is echoed in the ‘Hospital’ series where medical environments view the human body without hierarchy or function, but existing between two states of being.
