New exhibition: “Outside In” at St Vincent’s hospital

I am pleased to announce I am one of 18 artists selected for the “Outside In” exhibition at St Vincent’s hospital here in Brisbane starting on May 23. The exhibition will run for six months and my images will be displayed on level 2.

Here’s some information about the focus of the exhibition:

“Outside In” aims to provide patients with a connection from the hospital to the outside world with artworks that engender encounters with people, places and experiences beyond the hospital itself, offering opportunities for reflection and contemplation, engaging memory and recognition, inspiration and motivation. Our aim is to make a difference to patients’ hospital experiences providing hope and aspriation (sic), diversion from regular hospital routine, relaxation and potentially improve patient health outcomes.

I love the focus of this as it fits really well into one of my mission statements of Visited Planet. I’m also really pleased to be involved with St Vincent’s as a friend of mine spent the last 12 months or so of his life at this hospital in palliative care and I used to visit him there every Saturday and sometimes show him my work with the idea of bringing the outside world to him. So I actually submitted my work in memory of Rudy (previous posts about him here and here).

Here are the images that will be on display but if you’re in Brisbane, they do look much better on the walls of the hospital so go in and see them and say hello to the patients and staff while you’re in there.

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.” -Mother Theresa
