The Sculptures – click here to view the exhibits
The sculpture adds the third dimension to the gallery. The work weaves through the exhibition bringing in turns, drama, tranquility, intrigue and humour.
Many of the artists committed to this project whilst the hospital was still a building site. We have watched it evolve and responded accordingly. Each piece of work feels like it really belongs where it is.
The Oxford Sculptors Group work closely with Art Scope to provide sculptures for the exhibition and a special thanks to Mike Bigland, the Chairman of the OSG for his expertise and support. www.mikebigland.com
