Kiki Fleming

Italy

Kiki Fleming was born in China in 1942 of Danish /English parentage. From 1945 to 1995, Hong Kong was her home. She later completed her education in England and France reading languages and at Poitiers University and Exeter University. She also went to night school at a branch of L’école des Beaux Arts de Paris, in Poitiers where she received a rigorous and very formal art training. Returning to Hong Kong she started her own business organizing events and in particular fashion shows. In 1995 she left Hong Kong to concentrate solely on her art.

She is a profound and versatile painter who has the ability to interpret subtle thought and to stimulate the imagination. Her refined compositions are formed with colour fields, which often resemble the merging of mists and clouds in the heavens, while her tighter and darker compositions and collages delve into the innermost recesses of the human mind where unconscious voids and distant memories are amalgamated with collective legacies and layers of subjective emotionality. Through the lyrical tension in her paintings and the power of her colors and tonal reverberations, she is able to touch and stir the deeper psychological chords of the soul. The combination of letters and brush strokes, which appear in some of her paintings, have an intriguing mechanism that urges the viewer to try and unravel this mysterious language, decode the message or read the poem. Whatever their meaning, the words and letters seem to burst onto the canvas with speed and decision as does graffiti on a forbidden wall. Yet on some works the flowing letters are faint and hardly visible as through they are trying to hide an ancient secret or to record a fading memory. With great intelligence and sensitivity, she creates a spatiality that is both varied and linear, almost schematic, that leads ultimately to the creation of her own poetic universe.
