New abstract painting

Elizabeth Neel

abstract painting from the US: Elizabeth Neel

Elizabeth Neel's accomplished painting is one of the highlights of recent American abstraction.

Often using images gleaned from the internet as source material, Neel's references are transformed into abstract forms that retain just a hint of their original context and significance.

In this way, underlying narrative is embedded as a ghostly and cryptic presence, a strategy that echoes the practice of fellow abstract artists Amy Sillman or Katy Moran.

Similarly, the rich potential of paint itself is very much a protagonist of Neel's work, a use of the medium that both describes subject and becomes its own visual focus.
