Curtain and Stage, by Iain Gale

“Uniquely, McNab was given access to the set of EastEnders and the resulting paintings are surely among the most relevant works of art being made today. Turning the whole idea of a TV soap on its head, McNab portrays not the characters, but the empty world they inhabit. She paints as portraits the deliberate falsehood of the stage set; the market stall, the drab sitting room, the nightclub.”
