“Drawing as a direct mode of ordering thought can reveal unique, flawed and fragile things.. the artist, engaged in the act of perpetual looking, can draw the audience in, as Leach does, magnifying those complex realities that remain unchallenged, highlighting unchartered thresholds between the established and the yet to be discovered.”
Joanne Laws – On the threshold of recognition.
“Maybe the less we are spoon-fed and the more we need to make an effort ourselves, the greater the chance that this will instill in us a lasting engagement with the art. Chris Leach’s art seems to operate in this zone. The work makes you enter a world through the compression of your mind but the expansion of your senses. “
