"A Place to Heal"

Artist: Kenny Lapins


Vanessa Slavich

Artist Statement:

Working with Vanessa on "A Place to Heal" was a rewarding process from start to finish. It was a pleasure to get to know someone so strong and worldly, and collaborate with her to create a piece of art. Our goal was to reframe the image of the hospital where she received her diagnosis as a fauvist cityscape to lessen the frightful impact of that place in her mind.

The title of the work, "A Place to Heal," refers both to the hospital itself, literally a place to heal, as well as the idea behind the work, trying to heal the memory of a place. I also drew inspiration from a fauvist classic by Ernst Kirchner, "Houses in Dresden," painted in 1910.
