In At Close of Day, Colin Crotty portrays a nurse sitting listening looking down to an older women who sits in a cushioned chair. The woman’s gesture implies she is speaking of a pain or feeling in her chest. A small dog stands nearby attentively looking on. The scene traverses between recognizable objects - a coffee table, curtain and rug and a dream like space where exterior and interior overlap.
