BIR members, corporate subscribers and colleagues from our sister societies and networks gathered to enjoy an exhibition by BIR Artist in Residence, Hugh Turvey, last month.
Guests braved bad weather and travel disruption to visit the Bankside Gallery@OXO, which hosted the exhibition in Valentine’s week.
BIR President, Professor Andrew Jones, welcomed BIR members, corporate subscribers and invited supporters of the BIR. He said “We are delighted to support the work of Hugh Turvey, who brings art and science together, not just as a beautiful item to put on our walls but as a means to explore the potential for improving the patient experience.”
Hugh Turvey attended the event and was able to explain the intricacies of his work to the audience.
On 12-14 February 2014, the two “O” lights on the iconic OXO tower were switched off and the remaining “X” for X-ray blew a giant, 36,000-watt kiss to people on the South Bank.
Following the exhibition on the South Bank the exhibition moved down river for an extended run at Artopia, the newly opened gallery on St. Katharine's Dock from 27 February to 11 March 2014.
Hugh Turvey is an artist with an international reputation. His Xogram work is held in public and private collections throughout the world. Bridging the gap between art and science, graphic design and pure photography, it has been utilised in a myriad applications, including, commercially, for marketing and advertising, in TV and film and by architects and interior designers.
