A small number of paintings by Carol Rhodes, who died in 2018, have been especially selected to hang among, and in juxtaposition to, artworks in the House. Rhodes, who was brought up in India but lived her adult life in Glasgow, is renowned for her beautifully realised aerial views of fictional landscapes. Belying their scale and apparent simplicity, her paintings quietly question how we choose to see the world and our responsibility for its future.

About Carol Rhodes

Carol Rhodes was born in Edinburgh. She grew up in Bengal and returned to the United Kingdom at the age of fourteen to complete her education. She studied painting at Glasgow School of Art from 1977 to 1982. After a five-year gap, Rhodes resumed painting in 1990 and held her first solo exhibition in 1998. She is known for her paintings of fictional, apparently insignificant, landscapes which are usually viewed from an aerial perspective, which makes them look almost abstract. Recent exhibitions include Looking at the View, Tate Britain, London (2013) and The Ground Around, Vilma Gold, London (2010). Her works are in major collections including Tate, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut.
