Linda Fleming is a sculptor whose intricate drawings and large-scale wood and metal works create places composed of air much as material; places of shadows and light where the viewer can sometimes become a participant by entering the sculpture.
Her works have been exhibited widely in public spaces, galleries, and museums (New York, Chicago, Miami, Santa Fe, and the Bay Area). The intangibility of flowing gaseous materials, the shape that a sound might take, or a diagram of the wind are starting points made physical in these elaborate constructions.
Recent installations and commission: the International Quilt Study Center (Lincoln, Nebraska); the Berkeley Art Museum; Oakland Museum of California; Stanford Museum of Art; and Nevada Art Museum.
Fleming’s work has been reviewed in numerous periodicals: Art in America, Sculpture magazine, and the New York Times.
She is one of the founders of Libre, a community of artists in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where she continues to maintain a studio that she single-handedly built.
Fleming has received awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, Art Matters, and the Athena Foundation. She studied at Carnegie Mellon University.
She also was awarded CCA’s Distinguished Faculty award.
