Boyd & Evans believe that the life of a painting depends on what the viewer brings to it and that words can ‘damage’ paintings.

They use photography as sketchbooks. Their images are composite, reformed from photographs, pictures or situations they have observed and documented, designed to both tell a story but to lead the viewer to create their own narrative.

The artists have been long term supporters and actively involved in the hospital art collection and arts programme - you can find many other artworks kindly on loan throughout the hospital. Their large scale photographic work Inside Out (2017) welcomes you to the main entrance of the Hospital. 

Fionnuala Boyd and Les Evans (Boyd & Evans) have been working collaboratively since 1968. One of their most well-known pieces in Milton Keynes is Fiction, Non-fiction and Reference in the Central Library.
