Room shows a traditional Japanese interior. The proportions of the room are harmonious, an impression reinforced by the artist’s carefully balanced palette of grey-green, brown and white.
Milroy’s painstaking attention to detail seems to emphasize the complete absence of narrative or anecdotal information. Emptied of human presence, the room has a blank, eerie quality. The lack of a narrative dimension is unsettling as it offers us no obvious way to read the painting. Instead, an intense atmosphere is created that is disturbingly difficult to identify.
