Patty Neal Artist Bio:

My medium is oil and my reference materials are photos that I have taken. There are two main focuses in my work that have been consistent over many years. The first is I like to emphasize vertical and horizontal space in my paintings. Sometimes this is achieved with multiple panels where each panel is a different image but when the panels are put together it makes a single new image. When I work on ideas for paintings I often take my photos and cut them up, rearrange and combine them in different ways, emphasizing the contrasts between dark and light, foreground versus background. In my paintings of cityscapes, I am as interested in the geometry formed by a cast shadow as I am by the buildings themselves. The second and most important focus of my work has been light: how to paint it, how to make you feel it. I want to get the color of a lit object or building just right, to the point that I can convey a sense of place in time. I use identifiable imagery in my work, but my interest is fundamentally the abstract qualities of shapes and colors and how they can be illuminated. website: pattyneal.com
