MEDICINE & ART

 

The love of making art, has permeated the life of Tony Crosse since childhood. Tony’s drawings and paintings, that are created ‘live’, are often auctioned and are instrumental in founding and funding the Tony Crosse Manometry Laboratory at Guys Hospital, London, now at St Thomas' Hospital.

In his post as Healing Arts Consultant at the Medway & Maritime Hospital in the UK, between 1998 and 2006, Tony was responsible for making and commissioning over 100 works of art that still serve to enrich the environment and comfort patients, staff and visitors. Eleven of these paintings are included in The Public Catalogue Foundation, published in London 2004. The project at the hospital became known as HAPi i.e. Healing Arts Programme initiative and this link will take you to the site where several of the works appear.

During the past 5 years he has developed a synthesis between the latest discoveries in cognitive science and iconographics uniquely described as Neuro Graphic Reprogramming (NGR), for this work he has a PhD in cognitive science. The synthesis of Art & Science has long been of interest to Tony where he now explores and defines the interactive relationship between Therapist & Client using visual metaphor and auto-didactism as aids to the healing process.
