Greig Leach Artist Statement:
“Each of us have had to discover approaches to procedure the past year and how it has afflicted just about every of our lives. This exhibition offers how as an artist I was left to work by the emotions, turmoil and isolation of 2020. All of my artwork addresses the world all-around me as I see it, knowledge and maintain it in my mind’s eye. By presenting the reality of my ordeals, I hope to find the commonality in all of our realities. I am still left to present what I see, with that observing presenting thoughts we require to request of ourselves. 2020 brought individuals queries and differing particular activities to a in some cases violent head. For other individuals, it still left us feeling by itself, isolated or bewildered.
I have applied unique media as a strategy of underscoring the diverse experiences that every of us have experienced. Our details have been questioned, and our truths have been challenged, leaving us to give voice (or in my case image) to what we see shifting all-around us. I have utilized stained glass to elevate individuals to the stage of icons to the functions of 2020 especially focusing on those people who have risked their lives to assist us hold ours and on those people who have fought for the alter to have their lives valued by our modern society. Using stained glass offers these 5 individuals the gravitas of venerated saints that can be observed to present us a way to a far more excellent existence. Other times of the earlier year were far more speedy and fluid so I chose the media of ink and clean with a scale that underscores just how fast some matters have been transforming. The 3rd side of this exhibition are the significant scale Shiva Paintstik will work. These paintings develop by means of the study course of 2020, some spilling into 2021 substantially as Covid and civil unrest had performed the very same. These operates start out with laying in mattress checking out by means of Zoom and acquiring time in the backyard as likely to perform a normal work is no more time a daily action. They move by Covid scares and into Shut Down protests that promptly bloomed into Black Life Matter protests. Whilst I have entitled this exhibition “20/20” obviously the issues we have faced are not above, nor can they be contained in a one calendar year. And that is the place of the remaining two paintings in this physique of function. Initial, “An Analogus Metaphor” seems to be to our have to have to rebuild equally figuratively and virtually, and that we have to have to do that with each other in spite of race or nationality. Secondly, “I Did not Know” is my confessional that I, and consequently we, want to look difficult at our situation in culture and to issue whether we are having fun with privilege we have not attained, or remedy that is not provided to other people.
The artwork in this exhibition grew out of a need to have to hold a visual mirror up to what was occurring about me. Although I can not divorce myself from what I paint, I did not established out to develop an yearly of a tumultuous yr (how could I know in January, 2020 what lay in keep?). But as I worked in the studio painting what I was viewing and encountering, I began to see that these artworks were being different and much more unified then most of my do the job in excess of a identical time interval. So the artworks expose the tale that is remaining told and not the other way close to.”
