Dave Le Fleming – Painter, New Zealand

My oil paintings explore people and myth. Reclaimed, sculptural metal surfaces help to illuminate one of my central themes, verifying the passage of the ever evasive space time continuum.

Recently returned to New Zealand after 14 years in London, I now live and work in Taranaki.
