Marsha Dunstan, Under The Pink Tree, Vital Arts Gallery at The Royal London Hospital – until 7 April

This series of photographs, all taken within a few miles of the Royal London Hospital, invites us to recognise the beauty to be found at our doorstep. The first of these images dates from 2004, when the artist was living in Bethnal Green near an early-flowering cherry tree. Since then, she has added to the series annually with new images of pink trees. Each year the new works reflect Dunstan's changing concerns as an artist, as well as the inherent properties of the trees themselves. These photographs touch on ideas of renewal, longing, indoor and outdoor, as well as the rites of spring.

Expanding a notion of contemporary portraiture, the artist appropriates the illustrative vocabulary of medical science in her printmaking process and in doing so asks how this material corresponds or contrasts with the subject’s sense of self.

Liz Atkin, My Singular Fascination, Bethlem Gallery – until 15 March 2013

work by Liz AtkinLiz Atkin’s work is informed by her curiosity with skin as a primary source for corporeal art, both as metaphorical membrane and physical boundary.

Her work centres on a multilayered exploration of the possibilities of marking, extending and transforming the skin to question the limits of the body across and within the porous textures of light and surfaces.
