This is the title painting from Rachel Gadsden’s Beyond the Asylum series which depicts the front of the Denbigh Asylum with a group of staff on the left and inmates on the right. Large faces and flying figures appear at the windows with the distinct name of one of the main medications Largactil and the imprint of letters, embedded into the canvas.
