Greig Leach Artist Statement:
“Each of us have experienced to find out ways to procedure the past yr and how it has influenced every single of our lives. This exhibition presents how as an artist I was remaining to function by the emotions, turmoil and isolation of 2020. All of my artwork addresses the entire world all over me as I see it, practical experience and maintain it in my mind’s eye. By presenting the fact of my activities, I hope to locate the commonality in all of our realities. I am left to show what I see, with that looking at presenting questions we need to question of ourselves. 2020 brought these queries and differing private ordeals to a from time to time violent head. For other folks, it left us experience alone, isolated or puzzled.
I have applied distinctive media as a system of underscoring the distinctive experiences that every single of us have experienced. Our information have been questioned, and our truths have been challenged, leaving us to give voice (or in my scenario image) to what we see shifting close to us. I have made use of stained glass to elevate individuals to the amount of icons to the occasions of 2020 significantly focusing on these who have risked their life to assistance us preserve ours and on those who have fought for the transform to have their lives valued by our culture. Employing stained glass presents these five people the gravitas of commemorated saints that can be observed to present us a way to a additional perfect life. Other moments of the past calendar year ended up extra immediate and fluid so I selected the media of ink and wash with a scale that underscores just how speedy some issues were being switching. The third side of this exhibition are the big scale Shiva Paintstik operates. These paintings build by means of the course of 2020, some spilling into 2021 considerably as Covid and civil unrest had finished the exact same. These performs commence with laying in mattress visiting via Zoom and finding time in the garden as heading to operate a common occupation is no for a longer period a every day action. They transfer by means of Covid scares and into Shut Down protests that swiftly bloomed into Black Life Issue protests. Whilst I have entitled this exhibition “20/20” plainly the items we have confronted are not more than, nor can they be contained within just a solitary calendar year. And that is the stage of the last two paintings in this human body of do the job. 1st, “An Analogus Metaphor” appears to our need to have to rebuild both equally figuratively and pretty much, and that we have to have to do that alongside one another despite race or nationality. Secondly, “I Didn’t Know” is my confessional that I, and as a result we, have to have to look challenging at our position in society and to issue no matter whether we are savoring privilege we have not acquired, or therapy that is not supplied to some others.
The artwork in this exhibition grew out of a need to hold a visual mirror up to what was happening all-around me. Even though I can not divorce myself from what I paint, I did not set out to generate an yearly of a tumultuous 12 months (how could I know in January, 2020 what lay in retail outlet?). But as I labored in the studio portray what I was viewing and dealing with, I started to see that these artworks were being various and a lot more unified then most of my work about a comparable time time period. So the artworks expose the story that is currently being informed and not the other way about.”
