Artwork

In the contemporary world, we frequently think of art as something beautiful and decorative but, historically, art has always been fundamental to the creation of all things sacred. Art carves out special environments that are removed from the mundane and commonplace.

The works of art created for our building have the same purpose, to move beyond the ordinary and to inspire confidence in the extraordinary care provided here. To accomplish this, we have developed artwork inspired by a fusion of holistic Chinese medicine, coupled with advanced Western science. The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine served as inspiration for the building’s environment.

The Five Element Theory originated with the ancient Taoists and was used by Eastern physicians to understand the correlation between the human body and the natural world. Each floor represents an element, and each element is explored visually.

Sculptures designed by Terry Balle, PhD of the Balle Grey Studio.
