Lorraine Gill Galleries - The Clapham Road Series
Clapham Road StudioMy studio was an old building; 1930ís It was situated on 'murder mile' Clapham Rd itself; Van Gogh had lived for a short while on the street behind. Downstairs was 'Weeks Removals' a group of Cockneys who ran a removal firm.
In the beginning, I rented the attic up a small flight of stairs for 30 shillings a week.
It was bleak and empty at first and this etching shows a naked light bulb a chair and a strange stand rescued from somewhere - the shadows cast by the banister; the high contrasts show an atmosphere of ghostliness - that is how it was.
