Meera Thompson: ALLEGRO

Atlantic Gallery, June 5-23, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 7, 5-8 PM

Meera Thompson’s highly expressive gestural abstractions explore the way imagination transforms visual memories. Conceived as a series and virtually unfurling like Chinese scrolls or unfolding like Japanese screens, each group of images in ALLEGRO recreates the fleeting pace of passing moments. Painted in gouache, ink and water color on heavy cotton papers, the lush painterly textures and sensuously saturated colors of her works evoke the quickening tempo of changing scenes.

ALLEGRO is Meera Thompson’s sixth solo show at Atlantic Gallery. She studied at the Art Students League, graduated from Vassar College, and earned an M.F.A. from Boston University. She teaches Studio Art at the School of Professional Studies at New York University.
