Heart of the Matter Exhibition4th October 2023
Peter Hutchinson is a Chartered Landscape Architect, Chartered Designer, illustrator, product designer and artist. He has run his own successful award winning design practice for 40 years.
The sketches were drawn in the RVH Cardiac Unit and record the time he spent in hospital awaiting heart surgery. They record the journey with images of the wards and equipment but especially the terrific staff and the work they do in caring for their patients.
He made these sketches as a thank you to them – ‘we are all the benefactors and our society would be lost without them’.
This exhibition was facilitated by Arts Care, who provide opportunities for service users, healthcare staff and visitors to participate in a variety of art workshops, performances and events accessing high quality arts engagement in health and community care settings including transforming clinical environments into ‘creative cared for’ spaces. Improving personal health and wellbeing through the arts.
The Exhibition can be viewed at Belfast City Hospital’s Tower Block until the end of the year.
