Jesse Fleming at The Finley Gallery and L'Idée Fixe at Steve Turner Contemporary The tangible vs. the intangible ... Architecturally, the Finley adapts to the facade of the building—situated while seemingly floating in space. Imminently, the Finley imitates the quiet intangibility of William Leavitt´s shape shifting dreamscapes (pulsating purple plays with the inhibited greenery of garden plants), the poetics of Hollywood sets along with the untidy narrative of the Los Angeles...
