Overview

“There’s No Place to Hide” is a 39 x 68 inch Digital Print on Canvas (edition number 2 of 3) chosen by Tom Huck, Art Curator of University Hospitals in Cleveland to reside at a nurse’s station alcove in the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.

Goals

The architects Stanley Beaman & Sears goals for the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute, was to create a design that would improve the emotional wellbeing of the patients with spaces that are uplifting and life affirming. Curator Tom Huck, was tasked with installing artwork that would reinforce the design goals. A large wall space within a nurse’s station alcove was a prime location to place a large format work of art to further complement these goals.

Additional Information

I’m disabled with a spine disease and I’m interested in bringing public awareness to the healing arts.The work “There’s No Place to Hide” features one of my whimsies hidden in a grid of circles and undulating sweeps of color. My whimsies are creatures of my imagination, free of pain and unencumbered from gravity and able to move through the world without constriction. If you look at the work you might find the whimsy, but to help out, the whimsy hidden in it is shown here (last image).
