MICHAEL ADAMSON: NORTHERN VISTAS
23 June 2021 - 10 July 2021
Canadian abstract painter Michael Adamson makes a highly anticipated return to London, unveiling a stunning new body of work. 'Northern Vistas' sees the artist consider a variety of topics within one solo exhibition- resulting in a range of sizes, palettes, and techniques.
Adamson is the product of a trifecta of creative institutions- Ryerson University, Toronto (1991) Vancouver's Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design (1993-97), & Universität Kunsthochschule Kassel (1996). Combining his formal training with an early career in video and photography, Adamson emerged with a unique and undeniably enticing painting style. At the centre of his works is the convergence of personal expression and nods to cultural history. Adamson uses his paintings as a kind of shorthand, encompassing a range of the artists responses to observations, ideas and emotions.
TYRONE DEANS: SYSTEMIC FREEDOM
18 May 2021 - 5 June 2021
Thompson’s Gallery London proudly presents the debut solo exhibition of mixed media painter Tyrone Deans, 'Systemic Freedom' from 18 May - 5 June 2021.
Deans is a chartered architect balancing a fine art practice from various studios between Jamaica, Sweden and England. Born into a Jamaican family, Deans' work is deliberately material and inquisitive, exploring concepts of identity, culture, and class with every layer applied to the surface. Deans wields mixed media purposefully, integrating elements such as Ghanaian Kente fabric and found historical documents to drive conversation beyond formalism. As colourful as they are complex, Deans’ paintings are inviting and open-ended by nature acknowledging that history is formed by both those who have power and those without, and that both sides are of equal importance to remember and understand.
PATSY MCARTHUR: FLUX
27 April 2021 - 15 May 2021
'Flux' speaks directly to McArthur’s interest in exploring the grace and power of movement through still images. Her depictions of figures in motion convey a sense of energy or potential energy through a static drawing.
Using a monochrome palette, MacArthur strips down her images by removing the seduction of colour and demanding a focus on the content of her drawing. Throughout her career McArthur has worked with freerunners, acrobats and even trampolinists, successfully capturing their motion within her work.
PAUL WRIGHT "PROFILES"
24 February 2021 - 13 March 2021
Paul Wright in widely known for this dynamic and emotive portraits since he was shortlisted for the BP Portrait award in 2006 and later in 2015 with his portrait of Simon Armitage CBE.
For this exhibition Paul has entirely focus on just twelve powerful heads no bigger than sixteen inches square of people who have influenced and shaped his lives.
'Profiles' is a survey of likeness, vaunting the mystique of anonymity in a time where humans increasingly wield their image for personal, capital and social gain.
Paring back the concept of portraiture, Wright poses questions about the modern practice of portrayal. What motivates the depiction and dissemination of likeness today? What control is taken back or conceded, by recording likeness through analogue means in lieu of Smartphones and digital cameras?
Fore more information please get in touch with the gallery.

Shelter-in-Paint' is a milestone moment, marking James Fullarton's 20th solo exhibition with Thompson's Galleries since the painter's debut exhibition in 2000 at our Dover Street Gallery.
This exhibition's title points to the most pivotal year history has seen in a generation, an oil painter's manifestation of the 'work from home' mandate.
Always finding inspiration from life, Fullarton brings his bountiful palette and expressive strokes to every surface, articulating a kaleidoscope of colours in his tended flowers, the leaves, branches and sheds of the garden. Every composition seizes upon the opportunity to quite literally explore one's own backyard– a universe all its own, interactions legally enforced.

In a year where travel's joys have been stolen the world over, one must escape to the mind- and as Peter would suggest- the easel.
