One of two paintings that mark the entrance to the Chapel. Four small works on paper inside the Chapel continue the motif of the circle which refers both to its recurrence in philosophy and religion as well as reflecting the architectural form of the Chapel. The large paintings are made up of intensely-coloured circles which draw the eye in to focus on their subtle surface and texture built up with layers of translucent and opaque glazes. The icon-like presence of these concentric circles marks the entrance to the contemplative interior of the non-denominational Chapel itself. The paintings are one of 20 commissions by contemporary artists in the public spaces of Dorset County Hospital and are part of the ‘Bringing the Outside In’ project.
