In this series of twenty black stoneware sculptures the artist finds her creative output in fluid organic shapes, osseous structures and architectural landscapes to give her personal and subconscious response to the world around her.
Thompson adopts a creative process defined by a steady series of instinctive and dynamic decisions leading to investigate shapes and materials. In this constant investigations imperfections often represent a starting and ending point of her work.
For the artist, first and foremost, a work must have a self-contained vitality, an energy accumulated in time, a vibrant and yet calm inner life that goes beyond the object it represents.
The energy of the pieces, in their silent, imposing, black shapes, represents in fact, the strength of the whole series.
