Ghost Grid | Jonathan Leach

North Exterior Wall  
Houston, Texas - 
Lawndale Art Center is pleased to present a new mural by Jonathan Leach at Lawndale Art Center. Jonathan Leach's work focuses on the visual language of commercial architecture, city traffic and safety/cautionary imagery. Leach's mural activates the surrounding architecture and visually impacts the space. Ghost Grid features a hardline geometric style with an emphasis on bright color and spacial illusion, using the three windows as a base grid structure that warps and changes, highlighted by reflective paint accents that activate the mural at night. 


The new mural, titled Ghost Grid, will open along with four exhibitions on Friday, March 13, 2015, 6:30 - 8:30 PM, with artist talks beginning at 6 PM. The mural will remain on view until January 9, 2016.


This project is generously sponsored by Kinzelman Art Consulting.
