With that in mind, when I look at the work here, I wonder, “why bother using oil paint for this”? The oils do not appear to be integral or enhancing to the pieces in any particular way.

I do find it interesting how Neel presents her “sculpture” with her paintings (at least in the one photo shown here), to the extent that, with both viewed together, there is at least one clear comment being made about paint and space.

There is only one solution for these ugly ‘demented diagrams’ and that’s transcendence, where as the transcendental object resolves, the ‘madness’ is revealed as the illusion, as all of it is subsumed in the architectonic resolution, and the awful look of the picture recedes as attention focuses on form. But they are awful aren’t they? create something that can’t be redeemed, as a challenge to the Gods? It’s easy to be awful and horrid, anyone can do it.
