Thank you to the artist for very generously gifting this artwork to the Art in Healthcare Collection.

Louisa Livingstone graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2016 and won the Art in Healthcare purchase award, with funding from the Turtleton Trust.

The Yellow Pear resembles a photographic negative presented in a painterly and abstract tradition - where the yellow pear is presented in white and the background in yellow. It invites us to appreciate the visual playfulness to a beautiful effect.

'The defining concepts of my practice are the domestic setting and the process of perception. Featuring contemporary culture and the objects and people around me, I have worked in the traditional genres of still life and interior painting. With the objective to impart the sensation of objects found in everyday life, the familiar is made unfamiliar, distorted through the action of painting to prolong and deepen how it is perceived' - Louisa Livingstone
