In her paintings Neena merges the real and the imaginary, the abstract and the representational. In this way, the paintings open up a mysterious world which can be entered and completed by the viewers’ own interpretation and imagination.
A series of paintings depict flooded landscapes stemming from a combination of photos taken by the artist and images found online or in magazines. Something as arbitrary as roofs become surreal-looking as she uses these images to construct a new place within which fictional characters perform a role. At first seductive and playful, with a bold use of colour, the images draw the viewer into an alternative, perhaps dystopian, world.
