Tom Fleming (b.1982) is an artist from London, England. In this solo exhibition he presents a range of ‘cut-outs’ - compositions created from layers of colored card - which have been the dominant feature of his practice for the past four years. These works all explore the relationship between light and color within an abstract geometric format primarily focused on the square. In several pieces the illusion of projected light - achieved through a tonal shift in color - imposes a secondary geometric form, creating a tension between two states whilst maintaining a harmonious whole. In the ongoing Construction series, non-perspectival compositions suggest labyrinthine architectures or objects, the physical depth of the cut card competing with and contradicting our perception of pictorial space.
A spectrum of color, power and whimsy unites the inspirational muses on display in ÍCONE jardim , an exhibit by the New York City-based painter Javier Ávila showcasing his large-scale portraits of famous, glamorous and influential women including Elizabeth Taylor, Chér, Sophia Loren, Jacqueline Kennedy and The Supremes.
