Jim Leach | Hot Water

Artist Statement

In Hot Water, Jim Leach retraces common presumptions of artistic value and cultural worth through a new body of sculptural diptychs and readymade assemblages. Leach excavates the various echelons of creative output through a visceral questioning of meaning and morality. In traversing themes of philosophy, literature, and art history, these works posit new understandings of subjectivity, social unknowing, and ethical hierarchy veiled in an anarchic order.
