15 May 2021 - 6 June 2021
The Modern British Art era began after the first World War, an inherently significant cultural period. This epoch saw the rise of painters and sculptors such as Henry Moore, John Piper, Mary Potter, Terry Frost, Sir Robin Philipson, John Bellany, and Mary Fedden to name a few. This period of artistic output contains a range of style and focus- natural subject matter such as landscape and still life remained emphasised; scenes of leisure and enjoyment were prevalent; and those elevating abstraction saw a surge of interest and legitimacy much in part to Picasso’s growing influence. Thompson’s Gallery has proudly specialised in Modern British Art since its founding in 1982, and invite you to enjoy this expertly selected range of works from this pivotal period.

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.
