Jonathan Leach – Time Does Not Exist Here

(Houston, TX) – Gallery Sonja Roesch is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Jonathan Leach.  This solo exhibition in Houston features new paintings, works on paper, and sculpture that reflect the complex visual structures, systems, and signals that direct us through life.  The exhibition will open February 28th and runs through April 27th, 2013.

Leach’s work boldly dances on the line between depiction and abstraction altering architectural elements recalling icons, office buildings, billboards, swathes of color, and bisecting lines. The energetic friction of new development and colors creates tension within the works and evoke vigorous exploration and movement.

Three-dimensional spatial perception condenses and collapses bringing form, depth, and color to the very surface of his pieces. Leach’s new body of work distorts the pattern of understanding through formalist gestures and generates a feeling of progress and harmony.

Jonathan Leach lives and works in Houston, TX.  He was born in Lexington, KY in 1977.  He earned his BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and has since been exhibiting his work throughout the United States. Jonathan has had solo shows at Gallery Sonja Roesch, the Galveston Arts Center and galleryHOMELAND, created public sculpture in the form of a putt putt challenge incorporated in Discovery Green’s “Insperity Golf Experience” project.  His work is also in the collections of NRG Texas, Hess Co., the Bank of Montreal, Hobby Airport of Houston, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
