Queen Charlotte’s Hospital

Queen Charlotte’s Hospital

The brief was to be bright, child-oriented, durable and within a set budget. Working with Emily Allchurch of Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust, Robert Branchdale of Art Contact commissioned the sculptor Chris Plowman to create four works in sheet steel, based on collage artwork carried out by young patients in the pediatric outpatients unit.

A set of steel sculptures by Chris Plowman has just been installed at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in London. They stand on four granite plinths between the main entrance of the Maternity Unit and the main entrance of the Pediatric Outpatient Unit.

The works depict Jungle Animals, Farmyard Animals, Birds and Fish. The sculptures succeed brilliantly in providing a bright, charming and optimistic identity to an otherwise undistinguished outdoor space.
