Sam Leach: The Desire Of Things To Move Against Gravity - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Sullivan+Strumpf, Zetland

One of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists will release his first monograph, Sam Leach, this month at Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney. With over 20 solo shows to his name, Leach has exhibited extensively at galleries and museums throughout Europe and across the Asia Pacific region. He is known for his virtuosic oil paintings. Executed with exemplary brushwork and encased in resin, Leach demarcates an ongoing investigation of the intersection between humans and non-humans and the way we view the world. The comprehensive survey is interspersed with an essay by celebrated, award-winning Australian author Tim Winton and an interview with writer and art critic Andrew Frost. The book abundantly illustrates over fifty of the artist’s major works to date, including the 2010 Archibald winning portrait of Tim Minchin and Proposal for a landscaped cosmos which took out the Wynne Prize the same year.
