Artist Blaise Drummond has created a stunning new commission for the new children’s hospital Critical Care Department in response to the specific architecture of the new hospital, creating new relationships between the internal spaces and the outside world for patients and staff. Drummond creates paintings and sculptural installations in which clean lines of modernism are frozen in time within serene and delicate landscapes. For the children’s hospital, Drummond has collaged paintings with found elements from nature. A rock, a nest of twigs and a tree branch are juxtaposed with painted mountains, decorative wallpapers and veneer tree trunks. In Drummond’s work, modernism is recalled as a search for beauty, simplicity and a better way of life.

Blaise Drummond (born 1967, Liverpool) is a painter based in Ireland. Drummond studied at Edinburgh University, National College of Art and Design Dublin and Chelsea College of Art. His artwork has been exhibited and is in collections in the UK and internationally.
