WHO: Frank Fleming is an award winning Alabama sculptor who makes his home in Birmingham. Fleming draws upon his childhood and upbringing to create a world of wonderful creatures. Raised in rural Alabama, he developed a deep kinship with wild creatures and a refined eye for forms in nature. The easy combination of animal and human elements comes not from antiquity and polytheistic beliefs but from observations that reveal the kinship between animal and human behavior. This combined with an incisively whimsical sense of humor, produces works that appeal to everyone fascinated with things of this world. His work is on display throughout the country.
