Greig Leach Artist Statement:

I Are unable to Breath – Greig Leach

“Each of us have had to explore methods to approach the earlier yr and how it has impacted every of our lives. This exhibition presents how as an artist I was remaining to operate by the feelings, turmoil and isolation of 2020. All of my artwork addresses the globe close to me as I see it, knowledge and maintain it in my mind’s eye. By presenting the reality of my activities, I hope to discover the commonality in all of our realities. I am remaining to present what I see, with that observing presenting questions we have to have to ask of ourselves. 2020 brought individuals questions and differing individual ordeals to a in some cases violent head. For others, it still left us sensation by yourself, isolated or baffled.

I have made use of unique media as a method of underscoring the distinctive encounters that just about every of us have had. Our information have been questioned, and our truths have been challenged, leaving us to give voice (or in my case picture) to what we see shifting close to us. I have made use of stained glass to elevate men and women to the degree of icons to the functions of 2020 particularly focusing on those people who have risked their lives to assistance us keep ours and on people who have fought for the alter to have their lives valued by our society. Working with stained glass gives these 5 individuals the gravitas of honored saints that can be observed to demonstrate us a way to a more excellent everyday living. Other moments of the past 12 months have been a lot more instant and fluid so I selected the media of ink and clean with a scale that underscores just how fast some things were being shifting. The third aspect of this exhibition are the huge scale Shiva Paintstik performs. These paintings develop by way of the class of 2020, some spilling into 2021 substantially as Covid and civil unrest experienced carried out the exact same. These is effective start off with laying in mattress checking out through Zoom and obtaining time in the yard as heading to function a frequent position is no lengthier a each day activity. They move by way of Covid scares and into Shut Down protests that speedily bloomed into Black Lives Matter protests. While I have entitled this exhibition “20/20” plainly the factors we have confronted are not over, nor can they be contained in a solitary calendar calendar year. And that is the position of the remaining two paintings in this overall body of function. Initially, “An Analogus Metaphor” appears to be like to our require to rebuild both figuratively and actually, and that we need to have to do that with each other even with race or nationality. Next, “I Didn’t Know” is my confessional that I, and consequently we, have to have to glance tricky at our position in modern society and to problem no matter whether we are enjoying privilege we have not attained, or procedure that is not provided to some others.

The artwork in this exhibition grew out of a want to maintain a visual mirror up to what was happening all around me. Although I can not divorce myself from what I paint, I did not established out to develop an annual of a tumultuous yr (how could I know in January, 2020 what lay in retail outlet?). But as I labored in the studio painting what I was looking at and enduring, I started to see that these artworks were being diverse and much more unified then most of my function more than a comparable time period of time. So the artworks reveal the tale that is staying instructed and not the other way all-around.”
