True colours

A graphic collection of portraits showing patients in various stages of surgery to correct facial deformities has been a key awareness raiser for The Facial Research Foundation - Saving Faces. The charity was founded in June 2000 by surgeon Iain Hutchison, who used a legacy from his mother to fund artist Mark Gilbert to paint portraits of patients who have facial injuries or diseases such as cancer. The exhibition has toured the UK over the past two years and is currently showing at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Each painting and sketch conveys the intensity and power of the face damaged by trauma, or unveiled during surgery, and the changing emotions and character of the patients as they experience the event.
