‘Exeunt Omnes’ is a view towards a doorway and past stables in an abandoned farm building near the former Westborough State Hospital in Massachusetts. The environment is rich with detail that asks to be examined at leisure by the viewer.
The scene invokes thoughts of being in a forsaken, lonely place, where those who came before have all left a long time ago. Despite their departure, we still feel them in how their existence impacted the environs in a palpable manner: initials on the door, drawings in the concrete, broken glass. What occurred at this site? Was it a warm, welcoming place at one time?
Allow yourself to be drawn in to explore in detail what you see ahead. Follow those who came before toward the exit and the warm light that beckons. Heed their warnings as you pass.
