Liz Neal remakes one of Elizabeth 1sts iconic garments in a baroque-style fantasy, created from her discarded canvases and filled with patterned and erotic imagery. She has transported an object from one culture of aspirational opulence to another.

My Love

Liz Neal is a young artist living and working in London. Her rude and crude paintings and installations have an earthy nobility; painterly rhapsodies with a coarse grittiness.

Paul

2003

Oil on canvas

240 x 120 cm
Neal’s Paul is the boy toy du jour; shown together with Chandelier, he’s the ultimate sex club icon. Modelled like a 19th c. parlour painting (think Maja by Goya), Paul is a bit of sleaze for the most decadent connoisseur. Richly painted in Rococo tones, Neal replicates a true sense of Versaille-ish folly; the ornate bordello-style lamp sculpture dripping with all too-real looking ‘pearls of love’. Luxurious and filthy to the core, Neal dreams up a Regency House Party of her own – one far more intriguing than Channel 4’s – but definitely too naughty to be aired!

Indolent decadence permeates Liz Neal’s new works. An exquisitely painted Native American couple are locked in an embrace against a deep blue background. Their total immersion in each other belies the inevitable doom awaiting their way of life.

Liz Neal’s subject matter is often culled from fashion and consumerism; her work juxtaposing the slick and disposable with the carefully crafted and handmade. Her recent shows include Gloriana at One in the Other and her work is currently part of The Saatchi Gallery’s new displays.

Liz Neal’s Lair of the Lotus Eater is a vision of wild sexual abandonment. Images of women swirl naked on the ceiling, butt-cheeks spread, looking down on the viewer with intent. Legs, thighs, breasts and faces overlap, merging into a riot of flesh. Scenes of Bambi and Thumper frolicking emerge from a hallucinatory tableau of multiple blow-jobs. The room is a homage to experimentation, fantasy and debauchery.
