Brendan Neiland is one of Britain’s foremost contemporary painters and printmakers known for his distinct style of using architecture to create works that are uniquely pictorial.
Neiland explores the subtle relationship between architectural facades, the surrounding environment and the viewer’s perception in his new series of works based on Singapore cityscape scenes. The resulting imagery is figurative – relating to the city – and abstract with their formal structures, reflections of light, and modulated, saturated colour.
The paintings reflect various areas in Singapore including the Marina Bay area, the Financial District, Orchard Road, the Botanical Gardens and Gardens by the Bay.
Neiland’s work, which explores the enigma of modern metropolitan existence, is found in major galleries and museums worldwide including The Royal Academy, The Tate Gallery, the Arts Council of Great Britain and The Victoria and Albert Museum.
