"Untitled" by Mildred Thompson
12 x 14 inches, watercolor on paper -- unframed
Mildred Thompson (1936-2003) had a prolific career spanning over 4 decades. She created paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures using a distinctly unique language of abstraction. Thompson's paintings and works on paper are characterized by energetic mark-making, profound understanding of color, and complex compositions that absorb the viewer. She was interested in physics and astronomy and through her own interpretation, sought to visually respresent scientific theories and systems that are invisible to the eye. Due to the racism and sexism she experienced in the United States, THompson spent the majority of her career in Germany and France where she created many established bodies of work and exhibited widely. Thompson;s work has recieved increasing institutional attention in recent years as understandings of abstraction shift to become more inclusive to women artists of color.
Thompson's work was recently featured in the group exhibition Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today, which travelled from the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, and Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida.
