The National Brain Appeal raises much-needed funds for The National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. The National Hospital is one of the world’s leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with a wide range of neurological and neuromuscular conditions including stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, migraine and dementia. ‘Always On My Mind’ features collage, drawing, installation, photography, painting, prints and sculpture. Money raised from sales of artworks will go to help The National Brain Appeal. The title of the exhibition comes from the name of an Elvis Presley song that was number one 50 years ago.
The show includes work by 16 esteemed artists; Magda Archer, Gordon Beswick, Sasha Bowles, Nick Cave, Billy Childish, Matthew Collings, Alice Herrick, Corin Johnson, James Johnston, Francis Macdonald, Kate Murdoch, Carson Parkin-Fairley, Harry Pye, Elena-Andreea Teleaga, Twinkle Troughton and Tracey Williams.
Harry Pye: “When I find myself in times of trouble and need help to cope I turn to art and artists. For me, each of the artists in this show is a reason to be cheerful there is something about the way their minds work and/or the intention behind the work they do that I am in love with. My hope is that this exhibition of art that will make you want to make art yourself, give you food for thought, and feel more positive about life.”
