ANDY BURGESS: BESPOKE WORK Andy Burgess is creating a series of site-specific artworks for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. The project, initiated by the hospital’s charity CW+, aims to enhance the NICU environment for patients, relatives and staff. Working in close collaboration with the NICU team, Burgess will draw inspiration from the hospital’s neighbourhoods and its iconic views, sights and buildings. The selected scenes will then be transformed by the artist in his unique, abstract, geometric style and printed on medically compliant vinyl, before they are installed in corridors and waiting areas of the NICU this summer. “This project inspires me tremendously,” Burgess said, while Cynthia Corbett of Cynthia Corbett Gallery, which represents Burgess internationally, added: “The hospital is famous for its outstanding art collection, and we are thrilled to be among the ones adding to it.”
