"Subsequent Antecedents" by Marina Thompson
Thompson's paintings explore a richly layered, abstracted, and introspective experience of her encounters and conversations with people, with herself, and with the world. This colorful and graphic work merges printmaking with oil paint, gouache, flashe, and the ancient art of encaustic.
After years of working in the field of illustration, illuminating words with images, Thompson is now imaging patterns of communication and human interaction. Her paintings record an abstracted, layered and introspective experience of her encounters and conversations with people, with herself, and with the world.
"Good communication requires kinetic creativity: many layers of light, color, texture, balance, nuance, and surprise," the artist says. "Pattern and repetition, rhythm and interruption are a big part of what make up our lives. Geometry helps us make sense of the world."
The pulse of color and the play of light and texture are constant sources of stimulation for her. Color creates light, light creates form. Thompson's paintings explore depth, energy and movement with illusions of volume, space, light and time.
