Balancing the profound with the absurd, London-based artist Neil Gall (born 1967) translates the visceral and psychological interactions between materials and their surfaces to unsettling, surreal and sometimes erotic effect in his drawings.
Scottish-born artist Neil Gall (born 1967) is best known for his “S & M sculpture paintings,” which deploy fetish materials toward abstract sculptural ends, resulting in lumpy, Bellmer-like contortions of matter. This volume provides a general overview of Gall’s work, which ranges from assemblage to assemblage-like paintings to photography.
