Client: Queensland Health
Artist: Jill Chism
Brecknock Consulting was engaged by Queensland Health to manage a major artwork at the Ingham Hospital, as part of the Far North Queensland Art Built-in program. Cairns-based artist Jill Chism undertook intensive community consultation and site research to create a large-scale photographic mural, laminated within glass. Reflections on Ingham consists of three panels, each approximately 3 to 4 meters long and 1.5 meters high, which document and celebrate Ingham’s natural environment, local industries, and community cultural life. The glass mural forms a screen around outdoor consulting areas for patients at the hospital, creating an intimate consulting environment as well as a major central feature for the facility’s internal courtyard. Laminated within glazing, the images glow, filtering sunlight in a manner reminiscent of stained glass.
