Vermilion Sands by Tom Fleming

“I am interested in exploring the fertile ground that exists on the boundary between representation and abstraction, through a methodology that results in works that are simultaneously both object and image. Whilst my work is in one sense highly graphic – using flat, bright color and clean lines – the depth that is created through the cutting and layering of the card is central to how the pieces are experienced. I use this process to both reinforce and undermine a reading of pictorial depth into the works, playing with the ambiguities between figure and ground and creating subtle visual illusions that contradict our expectations of pictorial space through the suggestion of improbable – or impossible – sculptural and architectural forms.”
