Muse Gallery is pleased to present The Urban Landscape Reimagined, an exhibition of recent paintings by Nancy Neill. Nancy Neill’s body of work at Muse was inspired by the factories, old buildings and warehouses of the country’s rustbelt, particular to where she grew up, in the Rubber Capital of the world - Akron, Ohio. Her abstract paintings capture the feeling of empty and abandoned industrial places, man-made structures accented by light coming in against darkness. For these paintings, Neill uses clear mylar, a reflective material that provides a fluid surface for the ink and paint and other media she uses. The industrial material is well suited to paintings based on the man-made urban landscape.
