Artist's Statement

Gwyneth Leech, a professional painter, began drawing on her empty paper coffee cups during meetings in 2009. One thing led to another and the practice came to absorb her completely. In 2011 she first exhibited her massed cup artworks as public art installations around New York City. Her largest installation, of over 850 cup drawings, was shown in the Sprint Flatiron Prow Artspace, 23rd and Broadway, NYC, from September 2011 to February 2012. "Drawings 1-655" were included in "Luxuriant Refuse" at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Art, Spring, Texas in 2012. In 2013 she created site-specific installations for City Without Walls Gallery in Newark, NJ, No Longer Empty in NYC and for the Susan Teller Gallery, also in NYC. In September 2013, "365: A Year in Cups", a window installation for Anthropologie Regent Street, was a highlight of the London Design Festival. Read more: and
