Hands and Eyes 3

Neal Vandenbergh

Graphite, pastel, colored pencil and acrylic on paper

30 x 22 in

Neal Vandenbergh’s new body of works on paper expands the artist’s rigorous drawing practice. Warped hands, disembodied eyes and luminous drapery join dexterously rendered snakes, transparent faces, politicians with ruby eyes, and floating heads in glowing orbs to become repeating motifs that build towards something unsettling beyond the frame. Hallucinatory revelation distorts both every day visual experience and social relationships offering imagery that is at once alluring and alienating, personal and political.
