About the Artist.


Nick Macneil's work is a testament to an enigmatic psychological relationship with the natural world. The interplay of light and shadow, reflections, refractions, and intricate natural forms such as foliage, landscapes, and water, all serve as a source of inspiration for his paintings. Through painting, Macneil distills the essence of these elements into abstracted forms that invite contemplation and interpretation.

Macneil's compositions often evoke an otherworldly quality, blurring the boundaries between reality and imagination. They are a synthesis of gestural expressions, dynamic shapes, and a rich tapestry of colors that move in one unified breath across the surface. Each stroke is a deliberate exploration of the dialogue between form and space, inviting the viewer to explore the hidden depths of the paintings.

Ultimately, Macneil creates a sense of organic ambiguity, where the viewer is invited to immerse themselves in a world of visual poetry. He evokes an immediate emotional response to what lies beneath the surface, transcending the literal representations of nature.
