NHS Portrait Series
I have recently finished a free NHS Portrait Series, highlighting the diligent and attentive work from NHS staff during the pandemic. Each portrait in the series takes anywhere from 50 to over 200 hours to complete, and consists of thousands of dots in a pointillism style.
The portrait series is currently being exhibited at my solo show, Gobaith/Hope, an exhibition in Singleton Hospital from 16th of March 2022 debuting the full collection of portraits.
To find the nominees, I post on social media and send emails off to some contacts that I have that work in the NHS. The only requirement needed for the portraits is that they work for the NHS in any capacity, as I feel that it’s the least I can do to show my appreciation for their hard work during the pandemic. The nominee receives a free portrait, a high quality art print and the chance to be featured in future exhibitions and competitions.
