About the Artwork

The suspended sculpture “Faith Flows” at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler, Texas, reflects our client’s spiritual vocation of forward-moving service while aiding in wayfinding for visitors.

Uplifting and spiritual, the river-like sculpture directs visitors as it flows through the main corridor toward the hospital clinics, and its overhead suspension suggests guidance from above. Made of light perforated aluminum, the sculpture adds an airy vibrance to the hospital’s atrium.

The sculpture incorporates elements of the client’s logo and branding scheme, and the curved shape of each piece mirrors the architectural design of the hospital’s tower and adjacent heart hospital.

About the Artist

Specializing in custom suspended sculptures, Pennsylvania artist Talley Fisher creates inspiring original artwork for hospitals, airports, and other public spaces around the world. Her experience and style made her an optimal match for our client who requested a distinctive lobby sculpture reflective of their mission.

As she explains on her website, Fisher uses suspended artwork to “evoke optimism, inspire curiosity, and engage and enliven the experience of the visitor to the space” and finds these effects on viewers rewarding as an artist.
