Baltimore, MD, September 13, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The show features an array of works linked by expressive and mystical relationships between transient and communal party people. For example, Touched the Sky is a large-scale painting named after the popular underground dance track released this year by Dennis Ferrer. Much like the lyrics of the song, this painting captures the colors, rhythms and synergy on dance floors in New York, Miami, London, and Ibiza. Thompson paints mini grid-like windows filled with hieroglyphics figures. In each painting he creates his own language that on the surface resembles musical notes. However, when you look at them closely there is more to the story than meets the eye.
Other works on display are Shine (named after Thompson's own dance single released this year on the London record label Defected UK), Rej, Milk and 2 Sugars, Chinkara, and Sosue. Most of the works represent a chic blend of cultures, spirits, and passionate grooves from the underground dance scene.
Terry Thompson was born in Chicago, IL. He is a self-taught artist and was an artist-in-residence for 3 years at Baltimore’s School 33 Art Center.
