We are pleased to present Joe Fleming’s solo exhibition Traffic Jam in the Forest. Fleming’s recent paintings are a reflection of life in the moment. A mash up of images that collectively respond to today’s urban and rural changeover and to societies’ need for a balance of entertainment, action and the pastoral calm. Alluring translucent surfaces act as a metaphor for film and vision. Hand and machine are involved in the mark making on both sides of the surface, creating a play between figure and ground in a modernist way.
