About

Bio and contact info for Neal Auch.

 
We have in fact only two certainties in this world - that we are not everything and that we will die.
— Georges Bataille

I’m a Canadian artist with a keen interest in death, decay, and transience. Most of my creative output involves macabre arrangements of dead animal organs styled after 17th century Dutch still life.

I adopted photography as a primary creative outlet in 2015, and my practice is informed by an eclectic background that involves experimental music, transgressive literature, and academic maths.

My work has been exhibited in galleries, including The Shadowood Collective’s 2018 show. (The collective also includes world renown artist, writer and filmmaker Clive Barker).

My photography has been published in print in the coffee table book Aesthetics of Sickness, alongside works of prominent contemporary artists such as Andres Serrano. I’ve also been interviewed / featured in a number of magazines, websites, and blogs.
