Thomas Fleming

Artist Statement, transparent and
denying its own existence
sparkles like three dimensional
chips of paint
and light
hovering above the surface,
its reflection
obscuring the relationship below.
Structural elements peer out, enshrouded in
an unknown individual history.  They speak
of time on a grand scale, natural scars,
and the marks of the past
frozen in the illusion
of movement.
