Fleming’s paintings have a decidedly sculptural pull, representing the artist’s experimentation with form, texture, materiality, perspectival confusion and possibility. Fleming employs industrial polycarbonate – altering his surfaces that contribute a screen-like translucence and allow for the interplay of light and shadows. Fleming juxtaposes gestural abstraction with graphic silhouettes of color. The transparency of the polycarbonate intensifies the viewer’s experience, dissolving the boundary between where the painting ends and the wall begins.

Joe Fleming has exhibited internationally for over 15 years with a most recent exhibition in New York City (May, 2014). He has lectured at various 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, Princewaterhouse Coopers (Malaysia), HSBC Bank, Australian High Commission, Canadian High Commission (Kuala Lumpur), the Edmonton Art Gallery, the Museum of Civilization (Hull, Quebec) and the Holocaust Museum (LA). Fleming has participated in many international art fairs: Rogue Wave and Art Stage (Singapore), FIAC (Paris), Arte Cologne (Germany), Scope (New York and Miami), Papier (Montreal) and TIAF (Toronto). In 2009 Fleming’s work was included in Carte Blanche 2: Painting – a survey of new Canadian painting ( The Magenta Foundation) and The 60 Painters exhibition in Canada. Joe Fleming lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
