These pages follow the progress of my commission for the new NHS Breast Screening Unit at Broadgreen Liverpool. The commission commenced in 2012 and was completed in February 2013.
Please scroll through to view the blog postings to see the development of the final works tracking back to the initial stages of the brief.
THE BRIEF :
The unit would like a unique piece/pieces of artwork which will be titlled
" A Sense of Place".
It is desired that the peice would have rich jewel like colours rather than the traditional pink associaletd with breast cancer. We would like the artist to create work that has a contemporary feel and a sense of movement, through multiple connected pieces. We would like the unit to have artwork that is distincitve to the unit and work that uses different colour and imagery from the connected ENT Unit.
In addition to the main pieces it is desired that collaborative pieces should be created for the corridoors > Working with Sian Hughes the artist commsissioned for the ENT & Pain Units, you are required to create distinctive pieces for the link corridoors within the timeframe and budget allocated. This work should incorporate natural themes such as "water" and or "a sense of place".
All commissioned pieces must comply with infection control, health and safety and fire regulations and should be robust and easy to clean.
