Stephen Tompkins: Re-Animated
• Days with event
Opening: Thu, Jun 30, 18:00
Venue: Jan Arnold Gallery, Electric Avenue
Stephen Tompkins is an American artist and experimental animator currently based in Ohio after living for many years on the US West Coast.
His idiosyncratic style recalls the sensibilities of outsider/visionary art, urban/street art, comic art forms, vintage animated cartoons form and color.
He oftentimes deconstructs these vocabularies to their atomic elements and resurrects them as organic associative assemblages sometimes superimposing these metastatic formations on photographic imagery.
Robin Clark of MCASD remarked "Tompkins’ associative process playfully sutures the sublime and the ridiculous." Additionally, his work has been associated with the 'Hardcore' Pop Surrealism movement.
