In this, his new work, Neil continues to attempt to explore (and perhaps unravel) some more intriguing aspects of the complex tangle of his/our lives. His adoption of a flawless realist painting technique often belies the ambiguity of the imagery. The figurative realism, strong on narrative, can make them appear misleadingly believable. He would argue that they are his attempt to find a visual metaphor for the perplexing events of life (his and our lives). His hope is that they may lead him to a greater understanding. This exploration of his encounters with life is fundamentally intuitive in that the imagery is chosen without intellectual analysis of the content (or its contentiousness). The choices that result in the final work are made purely on a like/dislike basis. This can result in some surprising, even shocking, outcomes, revealing what couldn't (shouldn't?) be 'said' in a social context. How "real" is Neil Moore's "realism" - is he deceptively honest or just plain deceptive?
