ENQUIRE

David Le Fleming (NZ)

Le Fleming is a self taught artist, originating from the Manawatu district of New Zealand and currently based in London.

He’s exhibited extensively over the past thirteen years in places such as London, Paris, Lille, Frankfurt, Köln and Wellington.

He marries together different painting techniques; such as a painterly portraiture and a clean linear aesthetic, visually dissected if you will, all elements are cordoned off with heavily punctuated linework.

Using this particularcombination of punctuated linework and observed form, Le Fleming isable to channel the thread of interpretation and narrate his message through his typically odd character studies.

The canvas is key to Le Fleming’s work, choosing to work mostly with pre-existing objects such as car bonnets, fridge doors, filing cabinets and tin cans.

The inherent qualities of these found objects are incorporated in such a way as to set the mood and hint at a world from which the characters belong.

He’s particularly interested in working with objects that have typography or defects as they afford additional contextual properties and platforms for building ideas around.
