About The Work

Elizabeth Neels’ paintings have a palpable immediacy that suggests that composition is continually in flux. Her abstract gestures evoke the body, natural geometries, and man-made signs and symbols like Rorschach blots and linguistic codes. She emphasizes the importance of touch and pressure using printmaking rollers to create stuttering repetitions and mathematical patterns. By folding her canvases she creates figural shapes that reference both the bilateral symmetries found in nature as well as the aesthetic legacy of Modern psychology and psychoanalysis.
