About: 
Mahosot Surgery II was inspired by my time spent at Mahosot Hospital, a public hospital in the capital city of Vientiane, Laos. There I shadowed both Lao and foreign physicians, including teams specializing in burn reconstruction and maxillofacial surgery. Foreign teams performed surgeries with Lao health professionals and worked with educators to build health curriculum. This painting draws the viewer’s eyes to the focused expressions of the two surgeons, emphasizing the binational collaboration of the surgery and the universal need for health care that transverses linguistic and geographical divides. This painting now hangs in the Lao-Oxford-Mahosot Hospital-Wellcome Trust Research Unit in Vientiane, Laos. The subject was painted from a photo taken by Dr. Chris Lowry.
