This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Artist Statement:  "My works hint at the co-existence of the mundane and the cosmological to create a place where two realities simultaneously exist including the possibility that the past is also present.  . . .Physical sensation and perception are interdependent and we sometimes wonder if what we are seeing is an indicaton of something outside of what we know or blood vessels coursing through our eyes."
_____________

Known for large outdoor installation sculpture in metal and wood, Linda Fleming has studios in Libre, Colorado; Wall Spring, Nevada; and Benicia, California.  She writes that: "Moving between these places heightens my perceptions, as if looking at shifting reality from many points in space with time unfolding at multiple speeds. Migrating allows the awareness of parallel, coexisting realities to emerge and that is the real subject of my work."

Fleming studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, 1963 to 1966; and at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1966 to 1967.  She has been a Professor of Sculpture at the California College of the Arts in Oakland since 1986, and Chair of the Sculpture Department from 1988 to 2000.  Previous to those positions she taught at the San Francisco Art Institute, (1985-1990), and briefly at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and San Francisco State University in 1985 and 1986.  From 1981 to 1984, she was Visiting Artist at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore, and Mills College in Oakland, California in 1979.  In 1993, she received a Distinguished Faculty Award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

Collections with Fleming installations sculpture include Neiman Marcus of San Francisco; Robert and Karen Duncan and Mark and Cathy LeBaron of Lincoln, Nebraska; First Bank of Miami, Florida; Sonoma County Cultural Center in Sonoma, California; San Francisco State Univeristy; Stanford University Museum of Art; Berkeley Art Museum; Albuquerque Art Museum; Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery and the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. 

Fleming's Quilt Study Center work is Reverie, an outdoor sculpture, 14 by 27 feet.  The piece, a gift from the Robert Duncan family in honor of Duncan's mother, has "swirling ribbons of steel to evoke a sinuous flow around an interior space with chairs available for visitors.  Linda Fleming wrote of Reverie: “The structure will create a transparency that allows the large enclosed space to be filled with light and the exterior to constantly change.  As one moves around the work, the overlapping planes form continuously shifting layers with sunlight producing ever-changing patterns that transform inside and outside throughout the day and the year.  The complexity and repeated modules reflect the labor of making analogous to quilting.  When the chairs are occupied it becomes a gathering place reminiscent of the quilting bee: a state of mind as well as a place.”
