Gwyneth Leech is a painter whose subject matter is the visual drama of construction sites in Midtown Manhattan, where she is recording the incremental yet rapid building process as New York City undergoes major physical and demographic changes.
"In 2015, construction began right outside my studio window in Midtown Manhattan on what would become a 42 floor building. Overcoming a sense of loss and the desire to flee, I made a decision to stay and record the process from the foundation up. I realized then how fast construction sites change, with new shapes, patterns, light effects and human dramas daily. It set my work on a new path. Now everywhere I look, I see a city in a state of dynamic physical transformation and a sense of urgency drives me out on site to witness through painting as much of it as I can."
"Construction Paintings", her first exhibition of this new artwork, was on view in Fall 2016 at the head office of Sciame LLC, a construction company in New York City. In February and March 2018 she exhibited “Construction Series” in the Kaufman Arcade, a public art space in the Garment District, NYC. Her paintings have also been included in group shows this year at the Pierro Gallery in South Orange, NJ and Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington, MA. In 2018, her construction site artwork has been featured on NY1 television news, in The Village Voice, in international media and is the subject of an award-winning short documentary, The Monolith, from New York City director Angelo Guglielmo.

Gwyneth Leech has exhibited her drawings, paintings and installations in the United States and the United Kingdom in museum, commercial gallery, public art and alternative spaces.
