The abstract artist and art writer Steven Alexander wrote about Margaret Neill on his blog, The Steven Alexander Journal, in 2009, saying about her work:
"The images are simple curves and intersecting geometries, fragments of infinite configurations that form focused interactions of light and dark -- an elegant fusion of physicality and grace...Explorations of intersecting archetypal shapes -- arcs, elipses, circles -- these works are beautifully direct and sensuous. Their configurations are at once primal and analytical, the products of a highly focused painter's engagement with her materials, with the discipline of drawing, and with the world."
Margaret Neill works for a time on a group of pieces in a series, using classic almost primal materials such as graphite, charcoal, paint on traditional supports of canvas and paper.
Each series explores a particular formal conception and are ongoing until the exploration of this idea feels complete.
In this Switchback series, the artist worked with the painterly ovoid shape in a variously transparent or opaque ground.
Her interest was in embedding the shape into a shifting plane. Using heightened color to move in and out of the picture plane almost like an image exposed on a photographic plate.
