Thompson, who currently teaches painting at the Wellspring Renewal Center in Philo, has exhibited her work in California, New Mexico, and on the East Coast since the late 1970’s. She studied art at the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Vermont Studio Center, and The School of Visual Arts in New York City, and completed her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute this year.
"Kathleen Thompson’s large paintings in saturated hues combine bold gestural abstraction with hard-edged biomorphic shapes to create special complexity and layered allusions. These could be considered female-identified abstract expressionism conjoining Shahzia Sikander and large-scale American painting, and decoration and structure."
