Sam Leach

The Ecstasy of Infrastructure

Selected paintings of Ralph Balson and Edwin Tanner from the TWMA collection form the basis for Sam Leach’s fascinating new suite of works. With their respective backgrounds in plumbing/housepainting, engineering and economics, Balson, Tanner and Leach have all shared an active involvement in the development of the underlying infrastructure of society. Moreover, these three artists have, in divergent ways, revealed how the composition and assembly of the painted image can provide deep insights into the ways in which meaning is constructed. Through the recontextualisation of elements of the works of Tanner and Balson within his own painting practice, Leach continues his ongoing exploration of the nexus between art, science and philosophy and how developments in the interrelationship of these fields shape the way we perceive and make sense of the world around us.
