It’s not every day that a medical artist is asked to be part of a building project. To be commissioned to create wall art with a ‘medical art twist’ to mark the building of a large hospital redevelopment site, situated at Southmead NHS Hospital in Bristol.
The brief was to produce two very large traditional watercolour paintings on a one meter high canvas, their ultimate purpose to celebrate the completion of the hospital and to be displayed as wall art once the new hospital foyer had been built.
The purpose of producing such paintings was the brainchild of Davis&Jones. Davis&Jones were formed in 2009 as a collaboration between artists Deborah Aguirre Jones and Eleanor Wynne Davis. Awarded two major commissions with Bristol City Council and North Bristol NHS Trust, to work with communities within Bristol and with the redevelopment team at Southmead Hospital.
