SAM LEACH
Avian Interplanetary
Linden New Art, Melbourne
Until 6 August

Sam Leach's solo exhibition Avian Interplanetary is a proposal for a future habitat that takes into account the world view of non-humans as well as humans. The works explore possible connections between recent research about the evolved human preferences for certain landscape schemes and experiments into how creatures use visual signals and strategies to negotiate their environment.

The work consists of a large rendering of a cratered landscape taken from detailed images of asteroid surfaces, setting the basis for a future habitation. This environment will be combined with paintings of landscapes based on robotic visual systems, and sculptures referencing the visual and aesthetic approaches and preferences of birds, insects and rocks. This project draws out the links between landscape, animals and technology. Using paintings, sculpture and installation, the implications of the research on understanding how non-humans view the world yields both practical and aesthetic benefits.

ANNE & GORDON SAMSTAG MUSEUM OF ART
University of South Australia, Adelaide

In 2016 the Fleurieu Art Prize – the richest landscape art prize in the world – will relocate from its home on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia to the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art in Adelaide, where it will be presented to city audiences for the first time.

Landscape as a subject for art continues to capture the imagination not only of the wider community, but also increasingly of leading artists wanting to express a connection with place, and who recognise that landscape holds a compelling power for our contemporary culture.

SAM LEACH: EDITED BY ARTAND AUSTRALIA

Sam Leach is a conundrum. The man wears his intellectual preoccupations on his sleeve, declaring himself, right at the outset, as an artist of ideas. – Tim Winton

Sam Leach, 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 animals. 

Produced by Art and Australia, 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.
