The Only Way Is Up
The Only Way Is Up- 2023 -for Shaftesbury Building at Springfield Hospital.⁠ A  by Hospital Rooms

Shepherd ran a series exploring how colour and shape can represent mood and memory. Patients drew geometric shapes using colouring pencils then made sculptural versions with coloured paper ❤️💛💙🩷🩵💚⁠

Shepherd was interested in how the relationship between truth and childhood memory overlaps and produced vinyl patterns that respond to these conversations and workshop designs. ⁠

This is one of 20 artworks created, after 160 art workshops were led with service users, for the new build hospital in South West London @swlstg.⁠
