Sculptural tree guards
Artist Jane Cavanough’s latest work forms a protective embrace around two original cuttings from the Tree of Hippocrates in Greece.
Jane’s work now sits proudly in the front plaza of the Central Acute Services Building (CASB) with the cuttings sourced by the University of Sydney and provided as a gift to Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to symbolise the collaboration and commitment between the three organisations.
While this shaped the foundation of her art, Jane was also deeply influenced by DNA molecules and its coil and patterns.
Stainless steel was chosen for its longevity and colour which binds kindly with the external materials of the CASB.
