The Ceiling

The Ceiling

The Ceiling . is detail from 1571 at the mansion home of the Barons of Prestoungrange across so many centuries, a home today occupied by golfers from the coal mining community that once thrived nearby. A skull is sitting on an egg timer with wings. Taken from the house and the world for which it was first painted, the ceiling endures a non-life of educational Board meetings at Napier University with the most exciting elements hidden away in darkness. The slats and woodgrains provide a documentary dimension and the TV screen reinforces this.
