In an article by The Daily Mirror entitled Desperate Housewives: Artist Caroline Walker’s paintings of women through the keyhole,  Martin Newman writes,

They are mundane snapshots of exotic lifestyles, the swimsuit-clad backs of wealthy women glimpsed cleaning the kitchen floor, draining the pool or sighted semi-naked in a window changing a light bulb.

The paintings of Caroline Walker offer a tantalizing taste of someone else’s more opulent life, yet their appeal lies more in the sense of alienation and abandonment they invoke…her paintings are elegant and intoxicating, and worth getting out to for a look.

The exhibit will run until September 8th.  A special gallery tour will be held on August 31st hosted by Caroline Walker and curator Matt Price at 2:00 pm.
