The Experimentworks inspired by Joan Mitchell
Charis Lillene Fleshner
UNC Graduate Student
Exhibition Dates: May 8 - June 4
Experience the abstract-expressionist work of Charis Lillene Fleshner, whose vision is so deeply personal and individual that it paradoxically taps into the universal. Through an emphasis on shape, gesture, and process, these dynamic abstract works retain a sense of spontaneity and improvisation.
Artist Statement: My work is about the overwhelming waves of emotion that crash over you when a memory haunts your mind, struggles so personal that words are incapable of explaining them, and stories so good you get lost in them and forget who and where you are. I love square formats, works on paper, and pretending I’m a mad art scientist constantly experimenting. My major inspiration lately has been the abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 8, 6 to 9 p.m.
Closing Reception: Thursday, June 4, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Talk at 7 p.m.
