Artist: Sheree Flemming
At Forsight Gallery until 17th Nov.
Local artist Sheree Flemming is a regular exhibitor at Forsight Gallery and her latest exhibition “How Close is Someone” is not to be missed. Her casual interpretation of the absurd and unreal shriek with unintentional naivety. This enviable quality is daring and bold breathing life into the Newcastle art scene.
The characters in her compositions belie cute appearing menacing and somehow eager. A dark undercurrent twists and squirms creating peculiar displays of threat. Colour juxtapositions are brilliantly handled with texture and layering.
Devoid of the stereotypical delight of decorative art this snappy alternative is wrought with content and emotion. Freedom of expression is paramount.
This exhibition from a stand out artist finishes tomorrow.
