The mainstay of Chris Leach’s work is drawing. He is interested in how drawing can be used as a tool for both psychological and representational investigation. Chris is interested in questions of personal and social identity. His work considers notions of value, scale, and proximity. It seeks to interrogate architectural and physical spaces within particular contexts or environments. The work utilises archival materials and procedures that have their roots in the history and conservation of art. The works are intricate and finely detailed drawings, they are about proximities and relativities of scale on both a psychological and material level. They are constructed to encourage an intimate response, enticing the viewer towards the surface of the composition as a point of mediation between the image and the elements that make up the work.
