Colin Thomson “Plot Lines”


poster for Colin Thomson “Plot Lines”

This event has ended.

Colin Thomson derives his compositions from a mixture of graphics and indigenous patterns that recall early pictographs or ancient hieroglyphics. His paintings are a playful yet focused investigation of the relationship between figure and ground, color and drawing. There’s a cartoon reference that makes the difficult appear easy. The paintings combine a dissonant vocabulary of color, peculiar form, and differing modes of representation into a unified visual entity, creating ambiguities that require the viewer to engage in a constant process of visual and conceptual adjustment. At their best, these pictures balance the phenomenal, the analytic, and the intuitive.
