Wellington South Doctors Lounge

As part of an ongoing project Art Contact was asked to supply artworks for the new Doctor’s Lounge at the Wellington South Hospital.

Julia Brooker was commissioned to produce a number of her abstract paintings on aluminium panels. She has used a colour palate to complement the interior of the Lounge. The paintings were then framed in ‘Wenge’ coloured tray frames.

During the installation a number of doctors came to have a look at the new Doctors Lounge. They were all impressed by the lounge and particularly the artworks.

The creation of Doctor’s Lounges by the HCA Group of Hospitals has been extremely well received by the staff.

Royal Marsden – Sutton

The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton approached Art Contact to supply artworks for the Robert Tiffany wing. The recently refurbished Robert Tiffany wing required Art in all key areas.

Virginia Grub worked closely with the staff of the Royal Marsden – Sutton to choose a suitable theme for each area. Floral and Woodland themes were chosen for the corridor and the reception area. For the patient rooms a coastal theme was chosen.

The pictures in the corridor and the reception area were reverse printed onto the Perspex panels. Which were then fixed to the walls using Panel fixings.

In the patient rooms the pictures were framed in a moulding to suit the interior palette.

Talbot Hughes McKillop

The brief from our client was to source a few tactile artworks which would be a talking point. This we certainly have achieved.

There were few tricky areas to over come, the slopping wall in the main reception area and the acoustic panels in several of the internal rooms.

For the sloping walls in the Reception, a copper wall sculpture by Philip Melling was chosen to compliment the colour pallet used in the reception. Outside the boardroom a paper piece by an Italian artist framed in a perspex box gave the piece a jewel like quality.

In the break-out area, painted aluminium sheets by Julia Brooker were selected. These were framed in box frames to fit on the narrow walls between the windows.

The Boardroom, Pavilion Meeting Room and Booths have acoustic panels giving limited space for artwork. To get round this we commissioned a digital artist to photograph the local area and produce image montages of local and iconic buildings which were then printed onto the fabric cover of the acoustic panels.

BMA – Conference and Meeting Rooms

Art Contact was asked to find appropriate artwork to be included in the refurbishment of various meeting and conference rooms.

To meet the brief a series of photographic montages were commissioned printed onto acrylic panels. In the circulation spaces montages were created of the BMA and the surrounding area but in the named meeting rooms very specific themes were chosen relating to the name of the meeting room.

As well as these commissions, there were also a number of pictures that required re-framing to match the new colour scheme and the interior design of the refurbishment.

To further enhance the interior design clocks and other accessories were also supplied.

Worshipful Company of Fishmongers – Pageant Scroll

Art Contact was asked by the Fishmongers Company to arrange for the Conservation and Restoration of their Pageant Scroll. The scroll depicts the Lord Mayors pageant of 1616 and dates from around that time.

The scroll was hanging in a frame, mounted on fabric stretched over a wooden support. As part of their on-going refurbishment of the Hall it was decided to make a feature of the scroll by placing it in a purpose built display cabinet in the Library of the Fishmongers Hall.

Art Contact made the arrangements for the scroll to be removed from its existing frame and support. The scroll was then transported to our paper restorer for conservation, restoration and re-mounting onto a new conservation grade support.

The mounted scroll was then packed and placed in storage until the display cabinet had been installed ready to receive the re-mounted scroll.

See the images below in the various stages of the project.

M3 Capital Partners

Art Contact was asked to assist M3 Capital Partners with the display of some of the photographs of development sites they have been involved in. Images were selected and enhanced by adding strategic colour to highlight areas within the image to give a ‘pop-art’ feel to their original photographs.

Images were selected for a number of wall recesses. These images were printed onto Di-bond panels and floated inside perspex boxes which were designed to fit into the recesses.

One large image, again printed onto Di-bond and floated in a large perspex box was installed leaning against the wall on a slightly raised shelf in the reception.

Other items were mounted and framed in specially milled Oak moulding to match the other woods use in the design of these offices. The images were again selected from detail photographs of their development projects.

The installed artworks were so well received that we have since supplied similar imagery to their offices in the USA.
