Terry Thompson

Terry Thompson lives and works in San Francisco. Born and raised in the South Bay, he received my MFA from San Jose State University after working for several years in the Silicon Valley as an equipment engineer for various high tech companies. For nearly twenty years, he focused primarily on painting old neon signs. He sees these neon sculptural signs as historically and emotionally charged metaphors for unrelenting time. He strives to reveal the hidden beauty of these banal, rusty relics, by rendering them in oil paint. He also paints various “Pop” culture products that contain interesting typography and graphics on the packaging. Text is the common thread that runs through his work and most of his sign paintings. He also exhibits his photography. Even though his photographic work is often more abstract than my paintings, they relate because the subjects are typically derived from an urban landscape. Within his photography Thompson explores the interplay of form, colour, pattern, and texture; and just as in his sign paintings, he tries to find beauty in the often-overlooked.
