Ian Thompson is an internationally collected painter and potter. He divides his time and practice between the UK and France. Thompson’s contribution to Adamus comes from his Memories of the Body series inspired by his reading of Memories of the Body: Tales of Desire and Transformation, a collection of short stories by the writer Lisa Tuttle. Interestingly, Lisa Tuttle’s reputation is as a feminist writer and Thompson injects this irony into his series of pieces focusing on the male form. Thompson’s work was recently selected and shown in the Royal Watercolour Society’s annual competition, which took place at the Bankside Gallery in February 2012.
Memories of the Body, Series 4, #1 1997 is one of Ian Thompson’s entries in Adamus.
