A Victorian gothic sensibility creates rich fictional narratives infusing Maryrose Crook's new paintings with an otherworldliness drawn from both real and dream worlds. There is a sense for the viewer of looking in on private scenes - worlds not normally visible. Moths flutter against a window, a woman holds a wrecker's ball above Christchurch's Basilica and a strangely lit night street scape suggests the distorted reality of a Chinese opium den.
