About Neil's work: City architecture, landscape, travel, discovery, the Enlightenment, Gothic revival, satire and historical narratives shape inform the complex agoraphobic labyrinth of ideas and visual images that are, typical of Neil's drawn and printed works. Whilst informed by travel the subject focus in Neil's painting(s) predominately deals with exploration of landscape through real and imagined worlds, from ancient civilisations to present day heritage and culture, aiming to capture the essence of place and collective identities, often through fusing east and western styles and traditions together in theatrical and dramatic representations.
