Dr. Phyllis I. Thompson

Dr. Phyllis Thompson [1944- printmaking practice is informed by the gathering of information from the decorative arts and her matriarchal lineage.

Focusing on the art element of pattern and what it means to repeat—both in artistic practice and via memory, Thompson expands this theory into a visual language.

Centering work on a repeated visual element, or within a specific genre within the arts, and infusing it with your lived experiences can influence both the techniques used within your body of work and your theory.⁣
