Christine Neill is a nationally exhibited American artist whose work blends motifs of biological examination with visual processes and techniques. The effects of environmental changes and invasive species on human life and the reaction of earth’s habitat to these threats underlie all her images. She is represented by Goya Contemporary, Baltimore, MD.
Neill comments on ways Covid 19 pandemic has impacted her studio work: I watched with great sadness as the corona virus spread throughout the world, putting my research travel and in-process projects on hold. Shutdowns meant limited my access to professional digital processes. The large-scale digital printer I use is only intermittently accessible and the laser cutter went out of business altogether.Therefore, I began working primarily with watercolor paint and traditional monotype printing. Inexorably, the imagery reflects our solitary lifestyle and noxious environment. I’ve been grateful for the stimulation of my current studio projects and the patience of my isolation companions. Now I anticipate a time when I can fully access digital processes and return, with new insight, to my previously my set aside projects.
