Greig Leach Artist Assertion:
“Each of us have had to uncover methods to method the prior year and how it has influenced each of our lives. This exhibition provides how as an artist I was still left to function by the thoughts, 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 reality of my experiences, I hope to locate the commonality in all of our realities. I am left to present what I see, with that looking at presenting thoughts we will need to talk to of ourselves. 2020 brought individuals inquiries and differing personalized experiences to a in some cases violent head. For others, it left us experience by yourself, isolated or bewildered.
I have utilized diverse media as a method of underscoring the different experiences that each of us have had. Our points have been questioned, and our truths have been challenged, leaving us to give voice (or in my case graphic) to what we see shifting all over us. I have used stained glass to elevate people today to the level of icons to the occasions of 2020 particularly focusing on all those who have risked their lives to assistance us hold ours and on those people who have fought for the improve to have their life valued by our culture. Applying stained glass gives these 5 people the gravitas of commemorated saints that can be viewed to exhibit us a way to a far more ideal daily life. Other times of the earlier yr were more rapid and fluid so I selected the media of ink and clean with a scale that underscores just how fast some matters ended up changing. The 3rd side of this exhibition are the massive scale Shiva Paintstik functions. These paintings create as a result of the class of 2020, some spilling into 2021 much as Covid and civil unrest experienced performed the identical. These works start off with laying in bed going to by way of Zoom and getting time in the backyard garden as likely to get the job done a frequent job is no more time a day-to-day action. They move by means of Covid scares and into Shut Down protests that swiftly bloomed into Black Life Subject protests. Though I have entitled this exhibition “20/20” clearly the factors we have faced are not around, nor can they be contained within just a single calendar year. And that is the issue of the closing two paintings in this human body of operate. Very first, “An Analogus Metaphor” seems to our require to rebuild both of those figuratively and practically, and that we have to have to do that together even with race or nationality. Next, “I Didn’t Know” is my confessional that I, and consequently we, have to have to search tough at our situation in modern society and to question regardless of whether we are savoring privilege we have not attained, or cure that is not provided to many others.
The artwork in this exhibition grew out of a will need to keep a visual mirror up to what was taking place close to me. Though I can not divorce myself from what I paint, I did not established out to generate an annual of a tumultuous calendar year (how could I know in January, 2020 what lay in retailer?). But as I worked in the studio portray what I was viewing and going through, I started to see that these artworks were being different and far more unified then most of my function above a identical time time period. So the artworks reveal the tale that is being advised and not the other way all-around.”
