Each of these experimental constructions explores the point at which people – both her self and others – and environment meet. The works dwell on the geometry between our individual vantage points; the gulfs between each inhabitant’s experience, as well as the variations in one person’s own perspective over time through memory and the changing conditions of experience. They are ruminations on the physical, perceptual and psychological manifestations of place, experience, time, and change.

Intruding into the gallery space, the freestanding paintings on Perspex bring MacNeil’s ongoing preoccupation with space to the navigation of the work itself, straddling sculptural concerns whilst retaining focus on the painted surface and its support. Inviting the viewer to move around them, the planes of the works realign as the viewer’s perspective changes. The video and the works on paper echo and reinterpret this engagement with the consequences of shifting perspective.
