Tim Fleming

One of the attractions in next year's exhibition calendar is the flatlander, Tim Fleming. His insouciant pieces have been a delight for visitors to our store, and now will expand to a gallery space. In a recent 'I Made It Myself' column for The Age, Tim is quoted, 'Craft has become popular lately because people are tired of poorly made products. It's now possible to buy a packet of 20 textas and none of them work. It's as if we're just satisfied with the illusion of something, rather than the real thing. People seem to be responding to objects that are well crafted. They apprecaite that what they are buying is special or unique.
