Anna McNeil’s work has a stirring painterly quality that transports us through our endless sense of memory and self. McNeil paints from found photographs. She absolves each photographs contextual origins and creates new narratives. This helps to create an imaginative quality to her pieces. The colour palette and ethereal brush strokes create dynamics evocative of the dreamy reflections in water. This opiate imagery remind us of the elusive quality of memory itself. With hazy watercolour and strong compositions of people and landscape, McNeil’s work successfully absorbs the dream like quality of our memories. The work delves into our innate emotional experience whilst all the while pertaining to unknown undertones.
