The synthesis of paint and idea is freshly at work in the paintings of Elizabeth Neel (yes, we all know by now, she's the granddaughter of Alice). The paint becomes decay, violence, nature; instead of describing, it simply IS. The oneness is appealing. Equally appealing is the content-- exploration into our own violence, contamination of nature, decay and death. Deep, layered meaning, and the unselfconscious uniting of language and idea. More of her work HERE.
