Welcome to the Art of Caring 2020. Today we introduce the work of 4 artists who have contributed work to this year's exhibition.... David Robinson, Ana Miljkovac, Jane Walker and Martin Hill. The Art of Caring is an annual inclusive international art exhibition celebrating Nurses, Midwives, Carers, and the NHS. Thank you to the School of Nursing at Kingston University for their support.

David Robinson
"In 2018 I was admitted to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon following a severe bleed. I was moved by the kindness and professionalism of all those who cared for me - from paramedics, nurses and doctors to healthcare assistants, porters and cleaners. My work is a small tribute to all of them: thank you."
 My artwork focuses on people and the places where we live and work. I split my time between painting, drawing and printmaking. When not in the studio, I take my sketchbook out and jot down anything that I spot of interest on my travels: gestures, movement, how people interact."

Ana Miljkovac

Martin Hill
Martin Hill is an artist based in Dundee, Scotland, predominantly specialising in expressive oil painting.  He studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and based on the success of his degree show he was selected and shortlisted for a multitude of 'Best Of' graduate exhibitions, including the Royal Scottish Academy's 'New Contemporaries'.  He was also awarded the 2009 Barns-Graham Travel Award which facilitated a journey to Greece, a country which has inspired and informed a great deal of his work.  Following the aforementioned award, he was invited to participate in the 184th RSA Annual Exhibition in 2010.  Regularly exhibiting across the country, he has enjoyed several successful solo shows, notably at The Sutton Gallery, Edinburgh, and Roger Billcliffe Gallery, Glasgow.  He also has work in the private collections of the University of Dundee and the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture. Proclaimed as “One of Scotland’s most exciting young painters” (-Artmag -May/June 2014), Hill’s paintings are characterised by expressive handling and lively brushwork.  Bestriding genres and subjects, and with conscious nods to art history, “his work has been described as expressive and distinctive, drawing on both landscape and figurative traditions.” (-informededinburgh.co.uk -June 2014), while similarly being termed “expressive and poetic” (-galleries.co.uk -30-05-14).
