The abandoned Annie McCall Hospital and its environs in Stockwell, South London, have inspired and consumed the work of Geoff Routh since he and fellow artists transformed the wards into ‘Stockwell Studios’ over twenty five years ago. Today, Geoff Routh’s studio is still there and continues to be the muse for his work. Geoff Routh has painted a visual biography of the building, meticulously exploring the architecture and its growing relationship with nature. The most recent series of works by Geoff Routh, however, includes a fresh exploration into the nitty-gritty depths of this South London setting through the urban ponds that populate the environment.
