Java Studios Gallery Presents: Patrick Neill: Recent Paintings
Oct 17, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The exhibit consists of recent paintings of street scenes and portraits done with egg tempera on paper mounted on stretched linen.
T.S. Eliot wrote that the “sense of the timeless as well as the temporal and the timeless and the temporal together is what makes a writer [artist] traditional”. My work is traditional.
I apply colored paint on paper in arrangements of lines and shapes in ways which are pleasing to my eye. If someone expects more than this from a painter, he expects too much.
I studied with Leland Bell, Esteban Vicenti, George Spaventa, Peter Agostini, and Sydney Geist at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture; Emporia State University; Dr. Eugene Grigsby at Arizona State University.
I also, show my work at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. In July, I received an honorable mention in a show curated by Lauren Hinkson, Asst. Curator at the Soloman R. Guggenheim Museum.
