New Outpatient’s Building, Morriston Hospital

(Work in Progress) ABM Healthboard, Swansea, Wales

Our work in the new building for outpatients at Morriston Hospital has a role in wayfinding and communicating to the public but it goes beyond that to enhance the environment and to promote the hospital to a wider public.

Artists: Katie Allen, Alan Goulbourne, David Jones, Danielle Arbrey
Media: Illustration, Painting, Sculpture, Wooden furniture

We curated four artists who all have different but complementary approaches to the landscape that draw on the traditions of Welsh art: local painter Katie Allen, sculptor Alan Goulbourne whose work connects the interior of the building with the idea of the stone of the land, printmaker David Jones whose work incorporates the words of four Welsh poets, picking up on the bardic tradition and Danielle Arbrey, whose illustrations in the paediatric department depict a journey through the landscape.
