Thompson Brennan

Painting, Drawing, Site-Specific Design



I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I believe that all art making is a conceptual act. For the last forty years I have followed these ideas as catalysts for new bodies of work, often in series.

Someone once said “Do work that only you can do”. This could suggest that one create work that is of a particular style. I have chosen to adopt a particular “style” of thinking instead, which allows me to explore ideas through flexible modes of expression.

The current paintings are predicated on drawing which is a natural medium for me. I think that a work of art only becomes complete when a viewer engages with it.
