TateShots: Lucy McKenzie in A Bigger Splash

Behind the ScenesAre these paintings or a stage set? Artist Lucy McKenzie presents us with an elegant room, complete with fake marbling, trompe l’oeil radiators and the scuffs and stains of years of inhabitation.

This imaginary room was inspired by Muriel Spark‘s 1963 novella The Girls of Slender Means, and was used as a back-drop for a recent film.
