    Fleishman’s paintings are a unique combination of interpretations of landscape photographs and geometric abstractions derived from the color studies in Josef Albers’, The Interaction of Color. The origin of the photos comes from trips Fleishman has been on recently and her family’s collection of images from the Chesapeake Bay area.

    Fleishman’s painting (acrylic and sand on digitally printed chiffon) follows several processes of deconstructing the landscape. These entail flipping sections of the photograph upside down, tilting horizon lines, or cutting out parts of the image entirely. Within her paintings, the colored transparencies are created with chiffon and uniform acrylic paint application. The smoothness of the surface is contrasted by using sand which creates dimensionality in her paintings.
