Installation of “The Power of Nature” at MUSC College of Nursing

The Power of Nature, oil on linen, 32” x 83.5”, installation at MUSC’s College of Nursing

In the collection of MUSC’s College of Nursing, this oil on linen of a storm on Sullivan’s Island had special appeal to Dean Gail Stuart whose textbooks on psychiatric nursing seek to deal with the mind and body holistically. The tumultuous waves in the painting create a panoramic window in the institutional space. Stuart has featured Fraser’s images—batiks of outerspace, monotypes and moonscapes—in three editions of her Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing, published by Elsevier in 2004, 2009 and 2010. This is Fraser’s first large scale work of art in oil.
