About The Artwork

oil on canvas board from a series of paintings 'mementos'. The principal motif is two figures in an embrace. The paintings take as their starting point found vintage photographs of unknown couples. In a response to these images and the sensation that they suggest the paintings are developed to distill and translate this feeling through an abstract language. The erasing of representational and character details, the language of the colour palette and mark making, the development of the compositional forms to re-contextualise the figures and their moment, are techniques employed to distill the sensation of the image whilst leaving the narrative open to interpretation.

Anna McNeil is a British painter living and working between Barcelona and London. Her work originates in lived experience and explores relationships; themes of intimacy, communication, identity, and implicit memory. Sourcing from mnemonic imagery and found visual resources, she plays with both figurative and abstract language and employs the power of suggestion to engage the viewer in a dialogue with the painting.
