AboutTwenty-eight years ago, Compass Gallery first presented in the New Generation Show the talented new graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Peter Thomson. His creativity and imagination was immediately evident. His first solo show in 1995 was followed by several successful Compass exhibitions including a collaboration with Piccadilly Gallery, Cork Street, London.
Peter continues to work steadily, further cementing his reputation as one of the most imaginative and significant artists living and working in the UK today. Although he has shown consistently with Compass Gallery over the years, this is his first major solo exhibition in Glasgow since 2005. The appreciation of an artist's home audience is extremely important, so Compass is proud to have this opportunity of presenting his newest body of work.
A studio visit to Peter is always thought-provoking and invites discussion.
