Edward Rollitt

Lucei De Yavington (2023)

Edward Rollitt explores concepts of home as a place for intimacy; a space where we can exist and be comfortable, and as an environment that fuels our imagination. Rollitt creates historically-inspired, full-scale interiors, sourcing and making objects to furnish them. He then photographs each one, freezing the scene at a precise moment in time. Fictional characters inhabit these spaces, yet they remain out of sight. Instead, we feel them in the objects that fill the rooms: the smooth handle of a spoon used daily for years on end, or the damask-topped table worn down by a heavy Georgian tumbler.​
