Our Unity is a Business: Augustus Thompson

6150 WILSHIRE BLVD, LOS ANGELES CA 90048
May 18, 4 PM - 7 PM — ends Jul 06, 2019
Thompson’s diverse practice includes sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting and sound. For this exhibition he returns to oil paintings and works on paper made over the course of the last three years, during which he travelled considerably, spending time in Budapest, Germany, Spain and Belgium.

Oscillating between representations of interior spaces and voyeuristic imagery, in Our Unity is a Business Thompson enters into ideas about death, cultural histories, commerce, language, matrimony, sleep, car rides and ultimately, time. Multiple points of view hover together in a single picture, while elements from one painting may appear in another. Seen together, with their reduced palette and depictions of visceral moments, his works appear cognizant of their temporal conditions.

Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, May 18th from 4 to 7 PM. Praz-Delavallade is free to the public and open 11 PM – 6 PM, Tuesday through Saturday.
