The Collage Work of Al Neil

During the 80s and 90s, Neil produced several series of collages that were autobiographical and explored his artistic influences. Using collage and photography, these works are sometimes meditative, often dynamic, and reveal the influence of Robert Motherwell’s work in collage. Al has written about Motherwell’s post-war publication, The Dada Painters and Poets, which was a significant influence. Antonin Artaud, Alfred Jarry and Rene Dumal figure highly in these collages, as they do in Neil’s music.
