Elizabeth Neel’s paintings and sculptures meld architecture with the body and memory with action. Often drawn from anonymous images sourced on the internet, her works are excavations of lives both lived and unlived. Though arguably figurative works in their genesis, Neel’s paintings verge on pure abstraction, punctuated with a diverse array of materials including clay, wax, tape, and inkjet prints, yielding a tactile and almost sculptural finish.
Recent solo exhibitions of Elizabeth Neel’s works include those at Vielmetter, Los Angeles; Pilar Corrias, London; and Mary Boone, New York. Her work has been included in exhibitions at Leo Xu Projects, Shanghai; Lori Bookstein Fine Art, New York; and STUDIOLO, Zurich.
