Commissions, Wall Installations

Most Favorite Commission Ever (and I hope you never see it)

This is my favorite commission to date.  The project consists of four 18″ x 18″ reclaimed glass panels finished in plum, sky blue, violet, sea foam green and variegated copper foil.  They will hang on the wall in between banks of windows in the waiting room of a new cancer treatment facility at Boston General Hospital.

I hope you never see this commission for obvious reasons.  I hope that you never find yourself in the waiting room of a hospital, much less a cancer treatment facility.

It is my favorite piece for less obvious reasons.  While I love how the piece turned out, I love its purpose even more. Given its venue, the piece may serve as a place to rest worried and tired eyes.  It may serve as something ‘else’ to talk about.  It may even serve as a brief distraction from the task at hand.  Even though it may be for only a short moment, the piece may actually help someone.  Maybe even more than one someone.

I hope I get the opportunity to do more of this type of work.  It is very satisfying.  Thank you Kelly Filocco of Boston Art, Inc., for giving me the opportunity.

Here is the overall piece:
