GWYNETH LEECH: CONSTRUCTION SITES


This body of paintings explores the high-rise building process in New York City. Since 2015, I have turned my eye on many construction projects that are altering the Manhattan skyline, painting in series that can span months or years. It is the in-between stages that capture my imagination, when it is not yet clear what form the buildings will finally take.

 

"Construction Sites" was shown at the Clinton / Hell's Kitchen Studios Gallery on West 52nd Street in Manhattan in 2019.
