Rob McLeish has continually challenged his audience with work that oscillates between the figurative and the abstract, the useful and the useless, and the beautiful and brutal. In recent years, Rob McLeish has drawn extensively on the subject of the gymnast in his sculptural and collage practice, exploring notions of formal correctness and physical perfection in the face of inexorable bodily decline.
