The artworks consist of imagery based upon the Essex landscape, and the way which you may see a car’s headlight, (that would be a Subaru in Essex by the way), beaming along the horizon at night, two huge geometric flares of light…. ever seen that?

The artworks form a series of landscapes, which are also influenced by the process known as ‘movie matte painting’, the traditional visual effect used by filmmakers to enhance a film’s scene, by painting imagery on glass and placing this glass between the subject and the film camera.

Each image has been split into three components; custom laminated panels and screen-printed fired glass panels, laminate only, and glass only. These components present foregrounds and backgrounds. Subsequently these ‘components’ are spread along designated areas of the hospital. The viewer is hopefully able to link the separate artworks to get the ‘full picture’.

The bespoke shaped glass was cut using water jet technology following DXF files.
