These works are set in medical locations, each emitting a sense of unease. A hospital trolley sits in a corridor waiting to be used, another setting comprises make-shift medical beds erected in a school hall, somewhat evocative of a state of emergency. In the absence of the figure, the beds take on a human presence. These images convey a sense of human fragility, each object embodying a sense of vulnerability in keeping with the scenes of temporary relief constructed during times of political upheaval or disaster. The heightened atmosphere in the images is synonymous with loss.
