DESCRIPTION

Watercolor on paper

"I am influenced by investigative journalism, headlines, the editorializing of popular culture, magic, medicine, science, and the new age," explains Thompson.  Employing an investigative approach, her use of metaphor, simile, metonymy, and other literary devices throughout her works create conceptual proximity between disparate things, and re- contextualize the objects she makes or finds. "Lately I've been thinking about groups of people, clubs, fraternities, gatherings, secret societies. I like to image that through these paintings I can delve inside territory that is exclusive and make it inclusive by allowing the viewer to identify with the subjects of the painting. The painting is the invitation to the party."

Each of Thompson’s pieces personify familiar spaces and inanimate objects, applying an investigative approach to creating a space of dialogue among the objects and characters in her works.
