About Neil Gall

In a practice that incorporates assemblage, painting, collage, and sculpture, Neil Gall derives ambiguous narratives from eerily sensual constructions of mundane objects. Made from ribbons, ping pong balls, tape, hot glue, and the like, Gall’s abstract models form the basis for his explorations in other mediums. He photographs these models, shredding the images into collages and painting over them, while for other works he paints direct, photorealistic depictions of the constructions, physically integrating fragments of them into his meticulously worked canvases or presenting them alongside the finished paintings.

British, b. 1967, Aberdeen, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
