Neil is forging an enviable reputation as a still life painter for his small-scale, earthy representations of solitary fruit, bottles and jars. His distinctive approach places these objects within a carefully structured setting, creating an organic and vibrant composition with an intense sense of light and depth.
Neil's highly desirable work has been shown or sold at an impressive array of venues including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, and London's Mall Galleries with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and is already making an impact on the market.
"Painting, for me, is a journey towards understanding - a quest for knowledge and an ongoing struggle to understand nature and to decipher the effects of light on the world around. I try to paint as honestly as I can and bring out some element of truth and beauty of the subject."
