The Imposition (Prospect Room, Wollaton Hall, February 2006) by Helena Ben-Zenou
A large dynamic painting, inspired by renovation work in the Prospect Room, Wollaton Hall, February 2006, initially appearing to be an abstract arrangement of angular lines in black, grey and white with dull orange areas. A red and white striped band forms a diagonal across the top area of the painting. A strong white band on the left leads from top to bottom at a slight angle, other lines in grey and orange can be read as scaffolding; windows and stonework can be found in the background. Many areas are textured: the orange areas contain sandstone dust from Wollaton Hall.
