artwork to reflect connection to nature 

Richard.JPGPrince of Wales Hospital staff have helped shape a new public artwork for the ASB, through a series of workshops with local artist, Richard Briggs.

Commissioned by the Randwick Campus Redevelopment, Richard will design and install two large murals in the main entrance foyer of the new hospital building, to enhance the experience of patients, visitors and staff.

Staff from all departments and areas were given the unique opportunity to participate in Richard’s design process through a series of workshops, where they were asked to share their stories and thoughts on positive aspects of the local landscape around them.

With inspiration derived from the staff, Richard’s designs will celebrate the landscape of the Randwick coastline, connecting with country, place and community. 

“I was interested in hospital staff coming along for the journey in my artwork creation. It was so interesting to hear ideas and stories from staff about what makes the place they live or work in special,” said Richard.

Richard's interpretation of the feedback he received will be the inspiration for the large-scale artworks he will draw and painted directly onto the walls of the new building's foyer spaces on levels B1 and 0.
