9x12" | original watercolor on paper
Further exploring the figure with vivid, psychedelic color schemes, this series of paintings continues to push Thompson's thematic boundaries, conveying gender relations, celebrity hilarity, and goddesses personified.
Thompson's paintings are often accompanied by text; lengthy, prose-like titles that imply or describe the multiple connotative potentials of objects and words which have previously been veiled by their exhaustive utility. “I want to create unlikely empathies, and unearth the improbable similarities shared between distant things, for example the President and the World’s Tallest Woman, magic and big government, or physics and psychics".
