November 11- January 14 2020
Barbara Davis Gallery is pleased to announce Pathways, a solo exhibition by artist Paul Fleming now Open to the Public this November 12 through January 14, 2021. In his exhibition, Pathways, Paul Fleming‘s work continues his process driven practice. Captivated by the forms of everyday objects, such as snow cone cups or beverage dispensers, Fleming casts the objects in hydrocal and utilizes the voids as vessels for colored resin. Stripped of their conventional function, the objects are transformed into non-objective elements that examine the formal aspects of material and form. Color interactions either steadily gradate, or abruptly dissipate—the translucent layers of pigmented resin resembling glass-like pools that vary in depth and opacity. Volume, repetition, and scale are integral to Fleming’s process as the individual elements are duplicated to create immersive, rhythmic patterns. Collectively, the installations appear to undulate, confronting the viewer’s visual perception and activating the actual physical space.
Paul Fleming received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 1995. His solo exhibitions include Barbara Davis Gallery and Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Texas. His group exhibitions include Sergio Tossi Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy ; AR Contemporary, Milan, Italy ; The Art League Houston, Texas ; University of Houston, Houston, Texas and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
