The finishing strokes have now been applied to a major arts project stretching across the new Stirling Health and Care Village.
The first stage of the project by Leigh Bagley, a contemporary textile and pattern designer, involved the design and installation of nineteen new art walls and three large scale murals in the Bellfield Centre. These high impact and decorative interiors evoke freshness, wellness and familiarity to the corridors, giving a sense of emotional comfort through colour. During the design process Leigh aimed to create environments that are both uplifting and soothing, which in turn aid in decreasing frustration and boredom in people with dementia.
For the second strand of the project, Leigh curated a contemporary collection of limited edition prints for the GP and Minor Injuries and Outpatient Centres.
Leigh said: “Through a highly contemporary approach I hope I have demonstrated how pattern, print and colour can be transformative and uplifting for both patients and visitors, challenging traditional approaches to art for public healthcare buildings. I directly take influence from everyday surroundings and a love of modernist and abstract aesthetics.”
