Captivated by the warm light of the setting sun on a utilitarian hospital building, and intrigued by the image of a hospital inexplicably built next to a graveyard, Val Lewton captured the scene in photographs. He then set out to create beauty in a series of paintings progressively evolving from the loose brushstrokes of a realist interpretation to a tighter, flatter abstract. Each painting was a different experiment, and often increasingly architectural. Photographs were digitally manipulated in Photoshop, where Lewton changed colors, rearranged and repeated images… until satisfied, he committed the idea to canvas.
