Testimonials...

Dominic Pote has an astonishing ability to turn other people’s ideas into creative reality. Easy to work with, Dominic is reliable and professional. His unique work has given the visual impact of the interior of the St Giles Walsall Hospice a deeper sense of space and a real sense of place. Dominic’s work has fully filled the brief of ‘celebrating life’. He has created some of the most successful bespoke artworks for a public space I have ever had the privilege of being involved with.

Burns Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham

A collection of Winter scenes commissioned for the new Burns centre in the QE Hospital in Birmingham. Consultation workshops were carried out with patients and staff andcool colours and far reaching viewswere predominantly desired...

 

 
Throughout the life of the project, Dominic has engaged very closely with both us and the end service users, listened carefully and completely taken on board our suggestions and views to create a number of stunning, bespoke and very personal pieces of art, which not only compliment their surroundings, but have almost become as one within the space - they look as though they have always been there, and that’s quite an achievement given that this is a new build. I know that there were times when obtaining some of the images presented some challenges, but with humour and persistence, Dominic has created a lasting legacy of which he and we, can be extremely proud. In the event that I find myself in the very unique position of commissioning an arts into health project at any time in the future, I would have no hesitation in recommending Dominic’s work.

Bingley Hub Health Centre, Yorkshire

Working with a steering group of local residents and patients I created a body of work for the new health centre in Bingley. Local hidden landscapes were shared and discovered which then became integrated into the new building to inspire and promote the local area...

 

 
We first started promoting and placing Dominic Pote’s work in 2002. On seeing his photographs the first word that sprung to mind was ‘originality’ - both in terms of subject matter, shape, and above all execution. A lot of photographers work just in black and white, and that suits them and what they want to achieve. The same can be said of Dominic Pote’s softly coloured and hazy landscapes - so subtly right for what he is trying to achieve. And the list of his corporate collectors is too long to take up space here - but they must all agree with what we saw in his work. Perhaps of all his collectors, Barclays Bank provided the most exciting opportunity for him, commissioning from him over 30 works, all mounted on aluminium (with no glass or frame) for their world headquarters in London’s Dockands. We are proud to be associated with such a talented and unique artist.
