Annabel Neall's interest in depicting landscape and geological forms was inspired by her privileged access to geological conferences and field trips all over the world, accompanying her husband, a geologist and volcanologist.

The experience of viewing work by Picasso, Braque and other Abstract artists at the Berne Kunstmuseum was revelatory. This exposure to ideas, methods and materials, particularly collage, prompted her to explore new ways of depicting landform, geological strata and the figure.
The Storm Beneath the Calm uses those ideas to express her lifelong affinity with the land. Formal composition, abstraction, paint and colour, resonate and enable a dialogue to take place between the works and the viewer.

Annabel Neall is not simply a landscape painter. Rather, the land is the channel enabling her to create and give artistic form to her ideas and emotions.

Artworks all courtesy of the artist; with thanks to Soil and Earth Sciences, Institute of Agriculture and Environment, Massey University for the loan of the soil profiles. Special mention to Robyn Tillman, Susan Garland and Vince Neall for all their support.
