Joe Fleming

b. Canada

Canadian artist Joe Fleming’s recent paintings have a decidedly sculptural pull, representing the artist’s experimentation with form, texture, materiality, perspectival confusion and possibility.
Fleming’s new series grapples with figuration and abstraction. Found animated drawings are torn, deconstructed and morphed into fantastical images with a social and political narrative at a time when our beliefs and values are being challenged daily. Hand and machine are employed and mark making happens on both sides of the transparent surface, creating a play between figure and ground in a modernist way. Light travels through the surfaces casting shadows and involving the wall in the experience.
Joe Fleming has exhibited internationally for over 20 years with solo exhibitions in Singapore, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and New York City. He has lectured at universities in Canada, the United States and South East Asia since 1993. His paintings are included in many public and private collections such as BMO Financial Group, Trimark Mutual Funds, Honeywell Bull, Prince Waterhouse Coopers (Malaysia), HSBC Bank, A.T. Tolley Collection, Australian High Commission, Canadian High Commission (Kuala Lumpur), the Art Gallery of Edmonton, the Museum of Civilization (Hull, Quebec) and the Holocaust Museum (LA). Fleming has exhibited in numerous international art fairs: Art Stage (Singapore), FIAC (Paris), Arte Cologne (Germany), Scope (New York and Miami), Papier (Montreal) and TIAF (Toronto). He has received recognition for his work in Carte Blanche 2: Painting – a survey of new Canadian painting (The Magenta Foundation), 60 Painters in Canada, The Artist’s Studio (by Joseph Hartman), American Illustration, Imago Mundi, Design Lines Magazine, Azure Magazine, The Globe and Mail, Now Magazine, CBC, Chelsea Now and The Wall Street Journal Magazine. Fleming lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
