An installation at Marble Hill House, 2008

Oil on board, 505 x 760mm, museum rope.

This is a painting of an inaccessible attic space, a hidden void between the dome above the Great Room and the external wall of the building. The house has a row of windows on the top floor on the river facade, completely concealed from within the house and which light this strange narrow space.

In the installation, the painting was placed on the stairs which lead up to the attics, barring the route and drawing attention to the part of the house from which the public is excluded.  For painting click here.
