Simon Fleming: Vacancy/No Vacancy Simon Fleming: Vacancy/No Vacancy November 18 – December 6, 2014 Opening Reception Tuesday, November 18 Simon Fleming’s recent series Vacancy/No Vacancy presents two derelict homes as catalysts for numerous narratives of tenants past. The two repeated structures act as windows revealing histories and personalities of previous occupiers now long gone. Avoiding literal visual cues and signs, Fleming relies on the emotive qualities of colour, structure and material application. The works wander from representational to abstract and back again as they reflect upon the different tapestries of previous tenants. Simon Fleming recently moved to Vancouver with his wife and son after living in Ireland for 4 years. He has exhibited his work in Ireland, the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada and Chile.
