This work by Noronha da Costa stands between landscape painting and architectural painting. In a style that is deliberately impersonal and precise, the artist depicts an implausible situation in which immaculate white walls (seen through a greenish filter evocative of the passage of time) seem to replicate the walls of a museum gallery. Allowing the ‘outside’ landscape to be seen, the absence of a ceiling originates the blurring of inside and outside, through which nature creeps its way into the museum.
