A print of the facade of Hyde Park Barracks, reflected in still water and backed by a bright blue sky. Reflected architecture is one of Neiland’s most recurring themes.
The Hyde Park Barracks (often known as Knightsbridge Barracks) on the southern edge of Hyde Park. The barracks are 3⁄4 mile from Buckingham Palace, enabling the officers and soldiers of the Household Cavalry to be available to respond speedily to any emergency at the Palace, practice drills on the Horse Guards Parade, and conduct their ceremonial duties.

His work is widely exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide including, in Britain, the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Tate Gallery London, The Collections of the British Council and the Arts Council of Great Britain. He is represented by the Redfern Gallery and has had numerous shows internationally, including at the Galerie Belvedere in Singapore, who represent him in Singapore and the Far East.
