GBGLA is pleased to present the gallery’s seventh solo exhibition of Terry Thompson’s hyperrealist oil paintings. The show features the artist’s newest series of highly detailed and aggressively cropped compositions of vintage neon signs and graphics and continues through November 13.
For nearly twenty years, Thompson has focused primarily on painting old neon signs that have somehow avoided the wrecking ball – the signs that have lived and beat the odds. These sculptural signs exist as historically and emotionally charged metaphors for the unrelenting passage of time. In his paintings, Thompson seeks to to reveal the hidden beauty of these banal, rusty relics, by rendering them in paint.
