BIO / STATEMENT
Margaret Neill, born in Ohio, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Neill earned as MFA degree at Brooklyn College and has exhibited work in a variety of settings including the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art, the Monastery Plazy in the Czech Republic and the Central Library of Brooklyn among others.
Color and form and line are the subjects of her work and they interchange in the discourse and physicality of her working process. Her deaply layered abstract works carry subliminal references to nature and the urban environment. The shapes are indirectly related to the typography of signs, molecular structures, moving weather fronts and have a feeling of moving across and through the picture plane. They are a response to movement, stillness, silence, sound, darkness, and light.
Neil was artist in residence at Hiram College in Ohio, where she created a 40 foot wall drawing, and a visiting instructor at Middlebury College in Vermont. She has shown monoprints at the International Print Center of New York, and Lancaster Museum of Art in PA, and paintings at Hofstra University Museum and numerous venues across the United States. Recent projects include permananent installations at The Boston Medical Center, NY Intercontinental Hotel as well as Deloitte Unitversity in Texas. Neill’s work is in public and private collections including Colby College Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, The New School University, and Pfizer.
