Annalise Neil: Echo’s Potential

ANNALISE NEIL: Echo's Potential

OCTOBER 21, 2023–JANUARY 8, 2024

Curated By Natalie Gonzalez

This exhibition of work by San Diego-based artist Annalise Neil aims to encourage public discourse on what it means to be human in an interconnected world. Her spectacular work unites recognizable subjects–such as plants and animals floating in the characteristic blue of the cyanotype–with conceptual and philosophical threads related to quantum theory, perception, and time. The pieces interact with each other, discussing states of awareness and connection. 

Through her work, Neil conjectures that all properties of all things are relational, and observes that life is only possible through a collaborative symphony—nothing exists independently. Every living thing is a complex, multidimensional universe that interacts with others to form a prismatic web of energy. She endeavors to create work that will lead to contemplation and reflection, inviting a thoughtful examination of our relationship to reality and our surroundings.




Exhibition Celebration: Thursday, November 9, 6:00-8:00pm, at OMA West Gallery
