Summary

Botallack O'Clock is a funny, moving and thought-provoking journey into the creative mind of one of the most unique voices in post-war British art. For the last two years of his life, Roger Hilton took permanently to his bed, where he continued to work, painting over the side of his bed on sheets of paper laid on the floor. A small down-stairs room in his cottage became his bedroom, living space and studio, where Hilton would work through the night with only his thoughts, his imaginings and a temperamental radio for company.

Botallack O'Clock is a suspended hour of the night where Hilton's past and present combine with his vivid imagination and tenacious personality, giving a humorous and intriguing insight into the mind of a true artist. Major retrospectives of Hilton's work have been held at the Serpentine Gallery, Hayward Gallery and Tate St Ives, and his work is represented in major museum collections throughout the world.

The running time of Botallack O'Clock is 75 minutes with no intermission.
