Life Hue

Gabriella Raffa (2013)

In this piece I hoped to portray that while physicians are healers who often hold life in their hands, in many ways, it is the patients who give life to the physicians. Each patient we see is a unique hue or brushstroke in our medical training and careers, adding color and texture which transforms an otherwise monochromatic existence into a full spectrum of experiences.

    Great drawing, the cloth folds remind me of El Greco’s style. However, wear gloves during patient contact.
