Oil on canvas

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!
