On Saturday (April 25), Hollywood art gallery The Lodge hosts the opening reception for artist Jimmy Thompson’s (Film/Video BFA 04) newest exhibit, Icebergs. The series of six new drawings depicts icebergs in various states.
From the gallery’s website:
Thompson’s icebergs started out as smaller scale sketches and drawings, which became larger full-colored pieces done between 2014 and 2015. The structure of the iceberg lends itself as a metaphor frequently used in different fields from psychoanalysis to cultural studies. The sharp angles of the icebergs are reminiscent of the facets on a cut jewel.
Thompson is the co-founder, along with CalArts alumnus Harry McGowan (Art BFA 05), of the design and motion firm Brainbow. He is also a member of alumni art collective, The Stuff.
Icebergs runs through May 15. A limited-edition publication titled Icebergs—Jimmy Thompson will also be available for purchase at the exhibit.
April 25 through May 15
1024 N. Western Ave., Los Angeles
Opening reception on April 25, 6-9 pm
