Mark Outjers

Field Hospital, 2004 - 2005

Mark Outjers paints scenes that do not really exist as such. He orchestrates them from found (newspaper) photographs. Here we seem to be looking into an abandoned military field hospital. The flash of a camera causes parts to be overexposed and envelops other details in deep shadows. Outjers also in...troduced a number of elements to his own liking. For example, the mattress and the monitor, under the lamp, are the putrid colour of rot. This in no way diminishes the mystery.
