Thompson’s portfolio appears in Issue Four where Ariane Fairlie writes,
Symbolically, Thompson’s shapes relate well to memory. Our selective and emotional relationship to our memories is well represented with the use of a circle to block out a large portion of the landscape, or as a reminder of the golden hot heat experienced in a desert setting.
