Augustus Thompson’s realm of painting is interwoven with sound, performance, fashion, and installation work. Producing among other things, expressionist figurative paintings, geometric abstractions and photoshop arrangements of images printed out onto canvas, Thompson doesn’t necessarily work through or beyond any given medium, but with visual content in a variety of ways. His work's language counterpoises images drawn from consumer culture and those of the artist’s own invention. Representing a detachment from the conventions of painting, it offers surroundings of time and space that encourage the viewer to move around them. Disregarding any hierarchy of content, his practice also questions the ability and possibility for individual images to function today in a significant way.
