"Margaret Neill's drawings and paintings register physical energy as mental process, and reveal the connection between mind and matter. Utilizing sweeping strokes that echo the sine waves that are a primary scientific construct of movement and change, her graceful marks involve the viewer in the excitement of motion much as a swimmer feels the water." -Julian Jackson
Energetic and contemplative these works are intuitive and process oriented and carry references to language, music, mathematics, and everyday experience. The work poses another method of mapping a vibrational resonance of physical and emotional space in a lived environment. The patterns of light, the flight of birds, the sounds of people, wind moving thru the trees and across water. Paying attention to the varieties of emotional and physical experience, multilayered artworks are created in a variety of media using drawing as its foundation. In constantly changing circumstances, light and form begin to characterize what is inherently inexplicable and connect the viewer to a universal rhythm that is continuous and alive.
