Franklin Einspruch reviews the recent exhibition Anne Neely: Mopang: Recent Work at Lohin Geduld Gallery.

Einspruch writes that Neely's paintings "contemplate water, below the earth and above... The horizon line, often implicit in her work, became recognizable as a geographic distance... She has an extraordinary appetite for details, and details can overwhelm a composition with clutter. Placing sky above and earth below forced her myriad little shapes into one or the other, and unified them."
