"If artists create art to reveal their own biography, I may be guilty of that. My very first memory is of my ear to my mother's heart. From the time I could make a conscious choice I have been recreating the sensation of that continuous repeating flow in my work."
Born in Ohio and living in Brooklyn, NY Margaret Neill is a painter who prioritizes the artist's hand. Her mark making using singular strokes or large areas of color transform material into metaphor in undulating waves, suggesting not only paint itself but nature and the visual experience.
Neill's fluid abstract drawings and paintings are intuitively made creating intersecting multilayered forms and richly worked surfaces that refer neither to narrative or image but are informed by presence in the fluidity of time.
Neill's work has been reviewed in Art in America, The Brooklyn Rail, and The New York Sun. She has work in public and private collections including, Yale University Art Gallery, Colby College Museum of Art, Pfizer, Wellington Management, The New York Public Library, Deloitte University, TX, The Boston Medical Center, New York Public Library. The New School University, Hiram College OH, Loews Corp. Philadelphia,Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University, Ernst & Young, NYC, among others.
Neill is represented by KENISE BARNES FINE ART in Larchmont
