Thank you to artist John Melville Wilson for very generously gifting this artwork to the Art in Healthcare Collection.

'My aim is for viewers to experience the artwork and assess it in terms of structure, composition, colour and texture. I do not set out to tell a story or convey any kind of message. The pieces are formed from carefully calculated interrelationships of basic shapes vis-a-vis squares, rectangles, triangles and strips floating in space. The palette is restricted to the three primary colours red, yellow and blue, together with black and white and various shades of grey. The inspiration for my work comes from simple geometric shapes and in developing patterns and compositions in painting and 3D imaging.' - John M Wilson
