SILENT MONUMENTS (Joint Show)
mac  Birmingham
HOUSE and BLUE.
Robert Clarke, Exhibition Preview, The Guardian. May 27, 2007.

Maggy Milner and Colin Wilson conjure photographs rather than just take them. One is reminded of the spectral enchantment of a seemingly random arrangement of old bottles by Giorgio Morandi, or that unforgettable air of time held forever still in domestic details of Vermeer. In their different ways, Milner and Wilson are setting up small enigmatic pointers beyond the banality of their apparent subjects. There are deserted rooms, blue drapes, bowls brimming with milk - props for plays that have long ceased to be enacted, yet the theatrical suspension of disbelief remains.
