Margit Gatterbauer's art

Created by Kitchener artist Margit Gatterbauer, the vibrant mosaic called Life was originally commissioned for the Riverdale Hospital (renamed Bridgetown Hospital in 2002) that will soon be torn down to create more green space. Its 250,000 pieces of ceramic were painstakingly dismantled and reconstructed on the west side of the new hospital, facing the Don River and Valley. Artists have spent the past nine months restoring the work, which is eight feet high and 80 feet long. Fittingly for a hospital, the mural’s theme is the sustainability of life, showing the composite unity of objects and symbols ranging from the sun, family, rocks, earth, forest and water. Mountains and rocks symbolize the obstacles we struggle to conquer.
