Neil Welliver is one in a long line of painters of the Maine landscape, where the forces of nature play themselves out against a background of severe beauty.

As art critic Edgar Allen Beem has commented,

In the end, what you have in a Neil Welliver landscape is the evidence one artist has collected of the visual order within the seeming chaos of nature, of human consciousness alive in an indifferent universe, and of the clarity of vision that can be brought to bear on a beauty borne out of pain.
