Public Commissions

Diane McCormick creates a range of work to commission for healthcare, education and public settings.

Each public art commission is designed specifically for the enjoyment of the users of the building often with references to the history of the site or with input from the staff or patients as a major influence.

Each commission tells us a story, it connects us to something. Whether that something is a feeling, a memory or a snapshot in time. It could make us feel joyful or pensive, to want to laugh, to remind us what our values are. They also reassure us and connect us in a positive way to the present.

Diane’s commissioned pieces reach out and connect us to important things in our lives. The power of nature, to love and feel, and to be reunited with things which were forgotten or had gone unnoticed.

“There is a shared responsibility in undertaking public art commissions, they must please the client, the architect and the artist. To create a piece that will be seen numerous times it needs to have a sustained interest – by paying attention to the research at design stage, by using intriguing pattern or surface details or by throwing something new into the process to create an exciting artwork.”
