Catalogue Note

"The marvelous Dusty Corners, haunting checkerboards of interiors in which each artist appears alone in a shadowy room, alternating upstairs and downstairs with the oppressively vacant chambers of their house, the world before, and as it seems after, they were here."  Laura Cummings, "Better Than a Poke in the Eye" in: The Observer, London, 18 February 2007
