Stream | Emma Hunter



After a successful exhibition of her work, we have now installed Emma Hunter's Stream project in permanent locations across Royal Brompton Hospital. See 'Moulded River' in the main stairwell in Sydney Street at Royal Brompton Hospital, and her cyanotypes in the seminar corridor by the charity hub.

The Stream Project – a collaboration between visual artist Emma Hunter and Dr Philip Kilner of the cardiovascular magnetic resonance unit at Royal Brompton Hospital – was funded by the Wellcome Trust and explores the flow of liquids through the cardiovascular system.

Copies of the cyanotypes are available to buy. Please do get in touch with the arts team to find out more.

Jennie Ing 


The Bistro, behind Fulham Wing, Royal Brompton Hospital


National Gallery | Jennie Ing
National Gallery | Jennie Ing

Jennie’s work is inspired by an interest in architecture, a fascination with the way space is taken up in our cities and what it is that gives a place its identity. This, combined with her love of the patterns, repetitions and colours found in the built environment, lead to her colourful layered linocut prints. Much of her work is of London’s iconic buildings, but some is of lesser known views and of landmark buildings in other cities.
She works in relief print, using the reduction method to achieve her layers of bold colour.  This involves printing each colour separately, with the successive cutting away of areas from the surface of a flat block of lino, inking the remaining area and printing from this onto paper, continuing until the finished print is achieved. All of this is done by hand, with the printing taking place on her Victorian albion press. With the reduction block there is no going back and the whole edition must be finished at the same time. 
She is a member of Greenwich Printmakers, Southbank Printmakers and the Fountain Gallery at Hampton Court, and shows work at various galleries and art fairs including The Battersea Affordable Art Fair, The Landmark Arts Centre Art Fair, the Urban Art Fair in Brixton and the Brighton Art Fair. She has work in collections at Johnson Matthey’s London office, BNY Mellon (Brentwood) and the London Councils office, as well as having work in other collections in both the UK and abroad. Recently Blue Island Press published a range of her cards which are now being sold in central London Paperchase stores. 



All of the artworks in our changing exhibition programme are available to buy. Each sale includes a 30 per cent donation towards rb&hArts to support our ongoing arts programme for patients and staff. For purchase enquiries please contact contact arts@rbht.nhs.uk

Oliver Knott  |  1000 Cranes for CF


Main foyer - Royal Brompton Hospital

1000 Cranes
1000 Cranes by Oliver Knott

 A thousand origami cranes or 'Senbazuru' is conidered a powerful benevolent charm and is often associated with prosperity, long life and recovery from illness. Japanese legend states that if you fold a thousand origami cranes in one year your wish will be granted.


'When I folded my 1000 cranes I wished for a cure for cystic fibrosis. I was inspired by my friend Kate, who has lived with cystic fibroisis all her life, but her double lung transplant at Harefield means she still has time to smile!


"The process of folding the cranes and hand-sewing them to the mobile was time consuming, but I am pleased with the results and hope to use the mobile to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.'

Oliver Knott | Double helix


Main foyer - Royal Brompton Hospital 


These two mobiles were designed and constructed by Oliver Knott. They were commissioned by Hen Fest, a mini music festival that raises money for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust  and Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity.


Having the two mobiles side by side demonstrates how these to organisations, working together, can transform the lives of their patients. In design, they reflect the aims of both charities. The shape represents the double helix spiral of DNA chains – the building blocks of life – and the need to find a genetic cure for many diseases. The colour purple is the chosen colour for the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity and yellow spectrum the colours of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.


Butterflies represent the shape of lungs, which are  affected in cystic fibrosis. In many cultures butterflies are the symbol of rebirth. This is very appropriate for transplant patients – coming out of the cocoon of hospital beds, to be ‘reborn’ following transplant, to fly free and beautiful into the world.
