An exuberant joy found in the natural world inspires G. R. Thompson to his visual artistic expression. Even in the still quiet of the ordinary, he delights in the riotous variety of creation. Translating his experiences onto paper with brush and pigment provides a glimpse at his unique perspective.
Balance and proportion are ever-present themes in the artwork of G. R. Thompson. His use of vibrant colors builds a dynamic narrative in his use of contrast; this can be seen in his Mondrian-inspired sectioning which allow him to complete the story in a single pane. His most common medium is watercolor, although his recent illustrations have provided an opportunity to expand his modes of expression.
