It’s no surprise that creativity runs in the family, especially when your grandmother is celebrated portraitist Alice Neel. But this New York-based artist’s oeuvre takes a far more abstract slant. Here, her sludgy coloured, messy paintings are cut through with white stripes, obtained by removing masking tape. They’re complimented by her floor-based sculptures, which comprise an arrangement of disparate objects. Together they create an alternative psychological landscape informed by the artist’s experiences and the internet.
