Recent Installations

Our art collection focuses on 20th century and contemporary British art which we display in wards, outpatient units and public spaces. Here is a selection of recent installations of art works across our hospital sites.

Brian Eno in the Nuclear Imaging Department at Hammersmith Hospital

Brian Eno is a British artist, musician and composer who studied painting and experimental music at art school in the late 1960s. Regarded as a principal innovator of ambient music and generative painting, he has been exhibiting his visual art since the 1970s.

Eno has exhibited internationally, and in 2009 he was invited to exhibit on the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Alongside the visual arts, Eno has had a prolific music career, releasing twenty-five studio albums and producing forty-three albums including those by U2, Coldplay and Talking Heads.

The works on display aptly focus on the possibility of light, the lenticular images made by lenses, giving an illusion of depth and animation. As you walk past, the forms within the work begin to move and the colours begin to intensify and fade, bringing the 2D work to life. Similarly the prints, whilst appearing static, are given an energy by the range of colours. The square in the centre of each print is the same colour, and yet the colours framing the central square affect our perception of that deep blue.

We are grateful to Paul Stolper for donating a print to the collection and the gallery’s generosity in realising this installation.

Lisa Creagh in the IVF clinic at Hammersmith Hospital

 

Lisa Creagh is a British photographer based in London. She graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1994 before continuing with a Masters in Photography at Brighton University. After working as an artist in New York for several years, Creagh returned to the UK and cofounded The Brighton Photo Fringe in 2003; a city-wide photography festival running in conjunction with the Brighton Photo Biennial. 

The works on display are from Creagh’s The Instant Garden series (2010). Her work is based around the concept of creation within both the natural and digital worlds. For these works, Creagh took composite images of industrially grown flowers – petals, leaves and stalks -- digitally manipulating them to create kaleidoscopic gardens.

Creagh created this series of work when she was experiencing a number of health problems. In the process, she researched and included many ancient sacred symbols associated with healing, inspired by the idea of the ‘essence’ of flowers having a curative effect. She believes that exhibiting fine art outside traditional museum and gallery spaces is very powerful. She writes: ‘I believe in art as a common language across class and cultures so I believe strongly that it must work in lots of different contexts and not rely on the neutrality and artificiality of the white cube space.’

Fran Giffard in the Paediatric Clinical Decision Unit at St Mary’s Hospital

Fran Giffard studied Fine Art Drawing at Camberwell College of Art and has exhibited her work internationally and throughout the UK. She was shortlisted for the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year and has had several solo exhibitions, including the Northcote Gallery in Chelsea and the Someth1ng Gallery in Honor Oak.

The vinyl prints and light boxes on display feature her trademark vivid drawings of birds from around the world drawn over her personal diary pages, these help transform the feel of the department and offers children something to focus on at what can be a very distressing time.

“I’ve tried to cater for the patients in the room”, said Giffard. “There are colourful, friendly birds, birds that they’ll recognise like parrots and penguins and the diary pages reference London landmarks.”

“The nurses said it was useful to have these as a visual distraction so if they’re giving injections or taking blood they can ask ‘how many penguins can you see?’ and that way the patient is entertained in the middle of a stressful situation.”

The four-bed Clinical Decision Unit provides dedicated facilities for children who need further assessment and was created as part of a charity-funded £3.5m upgrade for the A&E department.

Emma Haworth and Chris Orr in the Emergency Department at St Mary's hospital.

The artworks by Emma Haworth and Chris Orr RA, now installed in the department, have been specially commissioned by the Charity’s art collection. The recent £3.2 million upgrade of the department has been funded by the Charity. The works on display showcase the nearby Paddington area and provide a serene, calming effect in what is often a stressful environment.

Emma Haworth has an MA in Drawing in the Fine Art Practice from Wimbledon School of Art. She is known for painting urban scenes based on her acute observation of the ebb and flow of modern life.  Her works are held in many private and public collections including UBS Art Collection and the Lister Hospital. Her works of the surrounding areas in all four seasons:  the canal at Paddington basin, Little Venice, Paddington Green with St Mary’s Church and Rembrandt Park, have been translated onto vinyl wallpaper in the department’s main corridor. Her Four Seasons work is now installed in the X-Ray reception area.

Emma Haworth said: "I wanted something that would reflect the area we’re in and the people that use it. It’s quite a transient area with lots of tourists and workers as well as the community that live here. We didn’t want it too urban, we wanted more trees and green so we just looked at the parks and nice areas nearby where people have lunch and rest for a bit."

"I liked doing it and it was really interesting. I think you’re more aware of putting more things in and giving more narrative for the picture when you know it’s going to be in a hospital. I think it’ll take your mind off being in a hospital and have a calming effect."

Royal Academician Chris Orr studied at the Royal College of Art where he worked as Professor of Printmaking from 1998 to 2008. His work is held in The Government Art Collection, Tate Britain and the V&A Museum. His idea for the commission was for an artwork to go in the department which would help people look out and think beyond the experience of being in hospital. He started by drawing St Mary’s hospital’s surrounding area from the QEQM building’s roof.

Chris Orr said: “I wanted to encourage a day dream into the world outside. From St Mary's it is possible to see the Wembley Arch, The Royal Albert Hall, The Trellick Tower, The Post Office Tower, The Shard and much more with which people could identify.” He then returned to his studio and added additional details to the panorama. “In the canal I put a fish typical of the inland waterways, a Chubb. Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the engineer of the Great Western Railway makes an appearance as well as Paddington Bear adjacent to the concourse of the station.”

He continues: “The basis of the work is observational drawing, but this is just the foundation, and the subsequent picture takes us into what can be seen and unseen, fact and fiction, past and present. I hope that the viewer will be encouraged to take a journey.”

Susan Collins in the Acute Medical Unite at Charing Cross Hospital

Susan Collins is a BAFTA nominated British artist who is currently Professor of Fine Art and Director of the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. She’s been a practitioner in the field of new and emerging media art since the late 1980’s. Her work is held in many public collections, including the Government Art Collection and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

The works on display here are from Susan Collins’ Wembury & Woolacombe (2015-6) series which recorded the view from the North and South Devon coast across a whole year. Each image has been constructed line by line over the time it takes for the tide to go in or out and accumulated to form an archive of the year, from which these prints are a small selection.

Susan Collins commented: “I am delighted to have these works installed in Charing Cross hospital. As well as being about healing and caring, hospitals, for patients and their visitors, are often about time and waiting. These works are also, in a different way, about time, with both time and memory embedded into the images. They also provide a connection with nature, the coast, the outside beyond the city, the hospital ward, the corridors.”

Zinka Zecevic, Occupational Therapist at the Acute Medical Unit said of the works: “The art has transformed the appearance of the ward. It was a unique experience to be able to visit and speak to the artist and have access to her work and have the opportunity to select the pieces from a much wider portfolio.”

Susan Collins install 2Nicholas Hughes and Harry Cory Wright in the Fraser Gamble Ward at Hammersmith Hospital

These artists' works capture the beauty of the British coastline and were previously part of our Art in Focus series. British photographer Nicholas Hughes studied for a MA at the London College of Communication. His work examines both the environmental impact of population growth and the places in which nature still dominates.

The works on display are from his series Seascapes. They capture the intensity of sunlight reflected on the sea along the East Sussex coastline, the early morning sun as it rises on the Welsh coastline and the sea fog rolling in on a Cornish shore.

Harry Cory Wright lives and works in Norfolk. Both his works on display are from the series Anglia (2015), in which he explores the eastern lowlands of the British Isles. Working with his 8 x 10" camera, Cory Wright captures the sun as it rises and sets over the flat, expansive East Anglian coastline.
We are grateful for both Harry Cory Wright and Nicholas Hughes' generosity in realising this installation.

Tim Head in the Peters and De Wardener Wards at Hammersmith Hospital

Tim Head is a British artist best known for his vibrant, abstract prints. His work has been displayed internationally, including at the Venice Biennale, Modern Art Oxford and Whitechapel Gallery. It’s also held in many public collections including Tate; the British Council Collection, Arts Council Collection, British Museum and the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, New York.

Previously on display in the Cambridge Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, the works on display showcase Tim Head's investigation of the digital medium and its relationship with the physical world. In 2014, Head described the works as 'fabricated within the remoteness of digital space and falling to earth as a fine deposit of inks.'

Dr Neill Duncan, Renal Consultant on the Peters Ward, said: “We were delighted by the Charity’s art team who responded quickly when we asked if they had anything in the collection that could brighten and add interest to the ward for patients and staff alike. “

“The works are brightly coloured kaleidoscopic dots, coral-like, overlap and are dynamic and fun. They grace the halls and the side rooms and have been praised by visitors moving through and patients staying longer. We would welcome all to come and see.”

We are grateful for Tim Head and his gallery Parafin's generosity in realising this installation.

Tom Hammick in the Neuro-Rehabilitation unit at Charing Cross Hospital

Tom Hammick is a British artist based in East Sussex and London, best known for his paintings and prints. His work is held in many public collections including the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Yale Centre for British Art, and The Library of Congress, Washington DC.

The 10 works on display demonstrate Hammick’s imaginative handling of colour and placement of figures, alone or in groups. Often working through the night, Hammick conjures dusk, dawn or moonlight with his palette of beautiful colours. The pair of woodcuts, Compound Day and Compound Night, illustrate his fascination with showing how the same building appears in different light.

Tom Hammick prints from woodblocks, working with blocks and boards which have a distinct grain which he uses to give texture to features such as the sky and water in his works. He builds up areas of colour by layering pigments, dark tones over light. His work draws on a rich array of influences and inspirations from both art and literature.

David Mach in the Riverside wing at Charing Cross Hospital

David Mach is an internationally respected artist best known for his commissioned sculptures and large-scale pictorial collages. He works with found materials to create works of art reflecting contemporary life. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1998. 

His four works entitled Visit London installed in the Riverside wing were originally commissioned to celebrate the London Olympics. They are colourful photographic collages filled with Mach’s sense of fun giving us the opportunity to view the well-known sights of London populated with amusing scenes. Iconic sights featured include Piccadilly Circus, The Globe Theatre and the Gherkin. 
 
David Mach comments “I’m all for hanging art in hospitals. Visit London is my second permanent display in Charing Cross Hospital. I’ve also helped to curate work in Aberdeen’s Royal Infirmary. I think art hanging on the walls of a hospital is part of dealing with being there as a patient and as a visitor. It’s part of feeling and getting better. And of course, it’s not just for patients and visitors; it’s for doctors, nurses and other hospital workers too. Everyone needs a good physical and spiritual environment to operate in and this is a marvellous way to support our wonderful NHS.”

Bettina von Zwehl’s Profile III in the birth centre at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital
 

Bettina von Zwehl is an internationally renowned photographer famous for photographic portraits and her fascination with the human face and human relations. She was born in Berlin and gained a BA in photography from London College of Printing. Her more prominent works include athlete portraiture for the commission Road to 2012 in the lead up to the London Olympics. 

We first displayed Profile III as one of our art in focus exhibitions to coincide with the launch of our appeal to raise funds for the new birth centre. At the popular request of staff we then moved the exhibition to the new birth centre when it opened. The work is a set of six photographs of beautiful 12 month old boys and girls in a style reminiscent of Italian renaissance portrait paintings. The subject matter is a great fit for the birthing centre especially as Bettina’s aim was to present each child as an intelligent being - a perfect match for a space created for expecting parents.

Art in Focus   Marc Quinn-51-690-577-100

The Collection is displayed in public areas and wards across all five hospital sites. Art works are largely on display rather than in storage, and as the hospitals expand and develop, there is a constant demand for new work to hang in small units as well as within major new building developments. We work closely with individual departments to select suitable and appropriate works for particular clinical situations, and with our Estates Department on the constantly changing public spaces of a busy hospital environment. To maximise the impact and appreciation of the art, where possible, we display together groups of works by individual artists.

Historically, the Collection has been built up through purchases, gifts and loans. Given the limitations on available funds for acquisitions, gifts are an essential element of our acquisitions policy, and from time to time are also augmented with loans, such as Henry Moore’s ‘Reclining Figure (Model for the Lincoln Center’ (1963), which is on loan from Tate. The Collection also includes historic works.

You can find out more about highlighted works from the Collection on the menu on the left hand side of this page. Works are displayed in a gallery format, and more detailed images can be found by clicking on the gallery image view.

Caring for the Collection

An important part of the curatorial team’s work is taking care of and preserving the Collection. This involves a wide range of tasks: from working with professional conservators to clean sculptures and frame prints, to moving works in and out of store during hospital refurbishment. These are all activities which support the creation of effective displays.

The images here show the restoration of a large bronze sculpture, "Horse and Rider" (1983) by Robert Clatworthy installed within a sunken landscaped garden in Charing Cross Hospital. Over the years the original dark brown patina (the tarnish which forms on the surface of the bronze) had turned to a chalky green colour, and there was evidence of further corrosion around the back of the horse’s legs. With the support of the British Land Company PLC (from whom the sculpture is on loan), we sought expert advice from Patina Art Collection Care. Using video-microscope probes to assess the cause of the problem, they determined that the cause of the damage was due to an accumulation of water, possibly due to condensation, which had been emerging slowly through pores in the bronze. Small unobtrusive holes were drilled to drain residual internal water, and the green corrosion removed and the patina restored to match the existing colour. The entire sculpture was cleaned, and coated with a special wax treatment to protect it from future weathering damage. You can find out more about the treatment, and view images of the conservation work in progress, by clicking here. (link to Patina Art website)

The curatorial team is also responsible for the maintenance and conservation of historic works such as "Portrait of Queen Charlotte", Studio of Allan Ramsay (c. 1760s), and we recently had expertly restored a group of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century portraits by leading portrait painters including Nathaniel Dance (1735-1811). Please click here to find out more.

We care for works which are specifically related to the history of the hospitals, such as the ceramic tile murals by Maw and Company which were part of the original Charing Cross Hospital at Charing Cross, and important set of murals designed by the architect John Weeks for St Mary’s Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother building in 1987.

 

Art in Focus - Previous Exhibitions

 

Tom Hammick, Harry Cory-Wright and Nicholas Hughes
Capturing the Light

Nicholas Hughes Untitled 9 Llandudno

This display focuses on the work of three artists - a painter and two photographers - all coincidentally born in the same year, 1963. Each artist, in their own individual way, explores how to capture the light in their work.

Tom Hammick's prints draw on the landscape and the placement of figures and buildings within them, while Harry Cory-Wright and Nicholas Hughes' photographs capture the beauty of the British coastline. 

Tom Hammick is a British artist based in East Sussex and London. He trained at Camberwell College of Art and the University of Manchester. He is currently Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Brighton.

These works display his imaginative handling of colour and placement of figures, alone or in groups. The woodcuts Compound Day and Compound Night illustrate a fascination with showing how the same building appears in different light.

Harry Cory-Wright lives and works in Norfolk. Both his works on display are from the series Anglia (2015), in which he explores the eastern lowlands of the British Isles. Working with his 8 x 10" camera, Cory-Wright captures the sun as it rises and sets over the flat, expansive East Anglian coastline.

British photographer Nicholas Hughes studied for a MA at the London College of Communication. His work examines both the environmental impact of population growth and the places in which nature still dominates.

The three works on display are from his series Seascapes. They capture the intensity of sunlight reflected on the sea along the East Sussex coastline, the early morning sun as it rises on the Welsh coastline and the sea fog rolling in on a Cornish shore.

Tim Head

September 2016 - March 2017

IMG 6565

Vibrant works by London-based artist, Tim Head, have gone on display in the Cambridge Wing, ground floor. The works on display showcase Tim Head's investigation of the digital medium and its relationship with the physical world. In 2014, Head described the works as 'fabricated within the remoteness of digital space and falling to earth as a fine deposit of inks.'

Tim Head's work is held in many public collections including Tate, London; the British Council Collection; Arts Council Collection, London; British Museum, London and the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, New York. 

 

Kate Whiteford: The Fleming Connection
October 2015 - June 2016

IMG 4561

The works on display originate from Kate Whiteford's commission for Imperial College Healthcare Charity Art Collection. She writes ‘For this commission I began to explore the relationship between Fleming's work in the laboratory with his childhood on a farm in a remote part of rural Scotland. I was keen to explore a visual dialogue between past and present by examining the role of the ubiquitous petri dish in the modern biochemistry laboratory’. Whiteford carried out research in the laboratories at Hammersmith Hospital, at Lochfield Farm near Darvel in Ayrshire and at the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum at St Mary's Hospital. 

Kate Whiteford was drawn to the brightly coloured agar plates in the hospital laboratories each waiting to be inscribed by the hand of the biochemist, as she says 'creating a form of drawing, to my eyes'. Fleming himself experimented with cultures to make pictures in the petri dishes, an early crossover between art and science. The series of Kate Whiteford's watercolours, on display, explore the fabulous colours of the agar in the petri dishes and the 'streaking' as chemists call the handmade marks on the plate. Each biochemist makes quite distinctive 'drawings' which can be identified by other scientists in the laboratory.

Kate Whiteford drew on Fleming's famous quote ‘we unconsciously learned a great deal from Nature’ to examine the relationship between the micro and the macro. The resulting works range from images based on microscopic studies of cultures in the laboratory to aerial images of the landscape around the place of Fleming’s birth.

Kate Whiteford was born in Scotland and is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow. Her work is held in numerous public collections including Tate, London; the British Council and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Architectural installations include works for the Venice Biennale, the British High Commission, Nairobi; the Garden of International Friendship, Coventry and Eden Court Theatre, Inverness. In 2001, Kate Whiteford was appointed OBE. She currently lives and works in London.

 

Jane Joseph: A View of London
October 2015 - May 2016

IMG 4529

Jane Joseph (b. 1942) is a leading British printmaker and draughtsman. The basis of her work is always drawing from life, recording the world with a realist’s eye. Jane Joseph trained as a painter at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts (1961-65) under Robert Medley, Head of Painting, in the early 1960s. She gained the Leverhulme Award for travel in Europe in 1965. In 1989, she was invited to work in the Graphic Workshop of Pécs, Hungary. This was followed by Abbey Awards in 1991 and 1995 which enabled her to study at the British School at Rome. She later taught at Wimbledon School of Art and Morley College, London.


Since 1980, Jane Joseph has lived and worked in West London where she has been preoccupied with depicting the urban landscape. She is highly regarded for her drawings and prints. Mel Gooding wrote in an essay to accompany an exhibition of her drawings at Angela Flowers Gallery, London (1987): “A drawing by Jane Joseph is a meeting place of three fidelities: fidelity to the place observed; fidelity to her feelings about that place; fidelity to her chosen materials”.


The works on display here demonstrate both Jane Joseph’s drawing and printmaking techniques and the use of traditional media like charcoal and chalk on paper. These monochrome works are informed and inspired by the urban landscape and include Thames-side views at Brentford and Kew and the Lethaby Building, Holborn. The listed building completed in 1907, was designed under the supervision of architect W.R. Lethaby, as the Central School of Arts and Crafts. Two works here also record the interior of her studio and depict objects including a plaster cast of the head of a horse of Selene from the east pediment of the Parthenon in the British Museum.

Jane Joseph’s work is held in many public collections including the Ben Uri Gallery, London; Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; Government Art Collection, London; Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

 

Bettina von Zwehl: Profiles III
April – October 2015

Profiles III

Bettina von Zwehl (b. 1971) is an internationally renowned photographer. She was born in Munich and completed her BA and MA here in London at the London College of Printing and the Royal College of Art. In 2011 she was Photography Artist in Residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and from 2013 to 2014 Artist in Residence at the Freud Museum.
Von Zwhel has focused on photographic portraits and has stated her `fascination with the human face and human relations’. The series currently on display at St. Mary’s: `Profiles III’, was first exhibited at the V&A Museum of Childhood in 2009 and depicts six boys and girls aged twelve months old. These monumental profiles are reminiscent of Italian Renaissance portrait paintings and focus on the minute detail of the faces. This exhibition coincides with the launch of Imperial Health Charity’s Birth Centre Appeal.
We are delighted to working directly with the artist on this project and are grateful for her generous support.

 

Jane Joseph: Sea, Land and Journeying
September 2014 – November 2015
Jane Joseph is an established print maker who is particularly associated with etchings. The basis of her printmaking is always drawing from life. The etching process provides a distillation of these earlier drawings producing images of great simplicity. Joseph studied at Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts and gained the Leverhulme Award for travel in Europe in 1965. Since 1980 she has lived and worked in West London, where she has been preoccupied with depicting the urban landscape. Her work is held in many public collections including the Government Art Collection, The British Museum, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The works on display in this exhibition demonstrate both her drawing and printmaking techniques. The six ferry drawings were inspired by Joseph’s travels to the West Coast of Scotland, a trip which she does annually during the same period in September. At this time of year, she observes the change in the seasons and enjoys the opportunity to look at a different landscape before returning to London for the winter.

 

Richard Smith: Untitled
February – November 2015
Richard Smith (b. 1931) was born in Letchworth, Hertfordshire and lives and works in New York. A painter and printmaker, he attended Luton School of Art (1948-50) and the Royal College of Art (1954-57). In 1959 he was awarded the prestigious Harkness Fellowship which allowed him to visit New York for the first time. In 1970 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. He has exhibited internationally, and his work is held in numerous public collections including, Arts Council of Great Britain, London, Tate, London, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, Rome, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. 

We are delighted to be showing 30 original works on paper in this exhibition showcasing Smith’s wonderful use of resonant colour.
The works are kindly on loan from Flowers Gallery and we are extremely grateful for their generous support.

 

Paul Huxley RA - Wall Drawing 3
This dramatic wall drawing used great expanses of vivid colour and geometric forms on three walls within the main entrance at Charing Cross Hospital which transformed the healing environment.

 

Edward Bawden
The prints on display were examples of Bawden’s later works and produced around the same time that a retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1989.

 

John Gibbons drawings
The drawings in this exhibition signalled a recent departure for Gibbons, as he turned to studio-based drawings for the first time in 2008/09 during a fellowship at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in County Mayo.

 

Marc Quinn Portraits of Landscapes
Boyd and Evans ‘Black and White’

This display focused on internationally recognised artists Fionnuala Boyd and Leslie Evans and their black and white photographs of American landscapes.

 

John Virtue - Seascapes
This exhibition is an engaging collection of nine acrylic paintings completed by Virtue since 2011. Selected from a large body of drawings and paintings made in response to weekly eight and half mile walks made between Cley and Blakeney Point on the north Norfolk coast, the black and white paintings are abstracted to imply a connection between nature and the artist’s internal landscape.

 

Darren Almond: Norilsk
In this display of seventeen photo lithographs taken in the Siberian city of Norlisk, Almond captures the beautiful snowy landscapes of the Russian north. He said: "I spotted a dilapidated old railway bridge. I wondered when it was built, because the trees there are so dead and spindley."

 

Mark Francis: Prints
The repeated shapes and markings in these eight etchings and monoprints are typical of Francis’ work. Suggestive of biological forms, the paintings are based on microbiological photography of bacteria, cells, membranes, sperm, ova, seeds and tissue which reveal the underlying patterns and structures of nature.

 

Medicine during the First World War: Inter Arma Caritas (Amidst the Arms, Love)
‘Medicine during the First World War: Inter Arma Caritas’ (Amidst the Arms, Love) is a series of 24 images from the Imperial War Museums Archive. The works focus on the brave men and women in medicine who tended to wounded soldiers during the course of the Great War.

 

Derek Boshier: Inside the Mind of a Pop Artist
Widely celebrated as one of the founders of the Pop Art movement in Britain in the early 1960s, Derek Boshier's paintings and graphic works commented on social and political subject matter including the space race, advertising, and the cultural relationship between Britain and the United States. We are delighted to have worked with Flowers gallery on this exhibition showing 10 works dating from 1979 to 2008.
