Bay area artist Linda Fleming opens Nebula Ether Wisp, an exhibition of sculpture and drawings at Brian Gross Fine Art on Thursday, March 23, with a reception for the artist from 5:30-7:30pm. Fleming makes her debut at Brian Gross Fine Art with her new work, Gray Matter, a large-scale, cascading lattice-work of powder-coated steel. Also on view will be a series of maquettes, intimate counterparts to her monumental works, and intricate, captivating graphite drawings that represent a continuation of Fleming's longstanding investigation into the science and metaphysics of geometric forms.
Linda Fleming's current oeuvre juxtaposes lace-like structures with everyday objects to hint at the co-existence of the mundane and the cosmological. This interdependence creates a place where two realities simultaneously exist with the possibility that the past is also present. The structures are diagrams of thought that endlessly layer and loop and provide a glimpse into the strangeness of reality beyond the world to which we cling. Her large graphite drawings view resonant places through a disruptive veil suggesting the space inside the mind. All the works in this exhibition act on the knowledge that we are aware of only a small part of existence.
Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Linda Fleming received her education at Carnegie Mellon University, and is currently the Chair of the Sculpture Department at the California College of the Arts. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and is represented in major public and private collections, including the Oakland Museum, Berkeley Art Museum, Albuquerque Art Museum, Djerassi Foundation, Woodside, CA, Stanford University Museum of Art, First Bank, Miami, Runnymede Sculpture Farm, Woodside, CA, and Laumeier Sculpture Park, St. Louis, MO, among others. The exhibition continues through May 6, 2006.
