"Archaeologists of a certain age yearning for mystic album covers will enjoy Paul Neads's paintings" - British Archaeology magazine

"The artist has tried to combine the spiritual feeling you get when you are at these [ancient sites] with what you can see. He has put something of himself into this exhibition... it will inspire people to go out and see them" - Buxton Advertiser

"Neads's version of nature is never copied outright but sifted via his perception, siphoned via creativity. Throughout, the stippling and varied strokes give his surfaces a good range from the worked to the (seemingly) licked" - Tim Birch, City Life

"A gem" - Salford Advertiser

"Paul's work... has all the realism and romance of a John Martin painting. The work is a must for anyone with a love for ancient landscapes and even anyone viewing his paintings with a little knowledge of ancient history would be inspired to explore these wonderful landscapes... 'Fantasy art'? 'Modern art'? 'Surrealism'? I think a very appropriate description would be 'Beautiful art'" - Andrew Roberts, Free Pagan Press
