Percent For Art – Fremantle Hospital Sculpture
Today Brad was the selected artist to supply an artwork for the Fremantle Hospital, under the Percent for Art scheme.
The artwork will feature in the rehabilitation grounds for the elderly patients.
There will be considerable input from both patients and the staff regarding the finer points of the work, however the general theme is to present a common object that relates to multiple generations to ponder common shared experiences and therefore connect.
The work will involve a cast bronze magnolia flower.
Magnolia’s have long been used in Chinese medicine to assist with memory recollection, with compounds found in the magnolia assisting in treating Alzheimer’s disease.
