A show of hands - Figurative paintings by local artist exploring connexions between people, and the comfort and support that another person can bring.
'I have produced a series of hand paintings, wanting to explore the emotion that they can convey. These paintings are a selection of hands in different poses and each might say different things to different people. I particularly wanted to show them here in Dorchester County Hospital because I have had family experiences related to both birth and death here, as many others will also have had. I feel it is apt to show them here, in this place full of every kind of emotion, for people to see what they want to in them. ' John Graham
