Biography / CV of Edward Fleming

For almost 40 years, as a Sculptor, Architect and Builder, Iíve been making three-dimensional art. I create sculpture in marble, stone and bronze, telling contemporary stories through classical technique. I strive to create sculpture that challenges a viewers` concept of reality, encouraging them to develop a conscious connection to life on this planet. During my career, beginning in 1993, I gradually moved from practicing architecture to becoming a professional sculptor. My art education derives from over 20 years of working and apprenticing with master carvers and other artists in the United States, Europe and Asia. I have been making sculpture full-time since 2001 and teaching since 2007. I find my source of energy and inspiration by making sculpture that is site/person/story-specific. Realistic figurative work is my main interest although I also carve abstract and celestially based sculpture. My intention is to continuously learn and grow towards becoming a sculptor at the level of Bernini, Rodin, Zuniga and Finotti and I have made a deep and on-going study of human anatomy and life-drawing which are the foundations for both my figurative and abstract work. It is deeply satisfying for me to think that I can study the human form for the rest of my life and always have more to learn. I employ my professional experience as an architect to large scale and public art. This has proven to be both unique and useful in working with clients as well as other professionals. I maintain the same high level of professional practice in my Sculpture that I have in Architecture. And as my experience and success in both disciplines show, I have a deep respect for collaboration and believe this is often how the strongest projects are created.

Artist Statement of Edward Fleming

In 1930, Edith Hamilton wrote this about Classical Greece: "For a brief period.....the rational that was to distinguish the West, and the deep spiritual inheritance of the East, were united. The full effect of this meeting, the immense stimulus to creative activity given when clarity of mind is added to spiritual power...." and "In the Italian Renaissance a great artistic development coincided with a great intellectual awakening and the art that resulted is in its essence more like that of Greece than any other..." The human form fascinates me. It is holographic in that the smallest part contains the limitless beauty of the whole that, in turn, holds the wonder of the Universe. I see the emotional and physical energy within a person on the same spectrum of energy that keeps our planet circling the sun. In my work I represent this idea both classically, with fine attention to anatomy and detail, as well as abstracted, focusing often on the earth-sky relationship. Human stories are equally compelling to me which is why most of my sculpture has a contemporary narrative with the stories ranging from personal to societal. With every sculpture I make, I`m trying to challenge viewers to feel and to think. I see sculpture not as decoration but as dialog that may be simple and direct or subtle, taking years to unfold. I carve marble and stone directly, in the same manner as Renaissance artists but with better tools. This allows me a physical, spiritual and intellectual connection to the material that is both obvious and numinous. In terms of real art, I believe there is no replacement for the human hand and in turn, the heart, mind and spirit that are connected to and pass through the artist`s material.

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
