H. Gene Thompson is a mixed media artist whose work questions the body and its form with their exploration of wearable sculpture. In their performances, they use unexpected transformations to create interactions of absurdity and closeness between them and the audience. Thompson uses images founded on, and abstracted from, reality to create personal landscapes that reference the disarray and order present in our everyday lives.
Thompson uses their body to perform fabric sculptures as a way of serving the audience a sequence of images that raise questions of the unknown and mysterious. In Thompson’s performances, they uncover new layers and morph their works with movement. Thompson contends with the constraints they have built themselves into, while blooming to soundscapes that they have mixed themselves.
