The simplicity of my works belies its intentioned impact. By giving equal importance to the tangible and intangible, to the positive and negative, I aim to create work that transports, exalts and transcends the everyday. Through exploring our connection to nature and landscape, we can revere not the only the natural world but also preserve a space for inner reflection.
Amy Thompson is a Canadian visual artist based in Ottawa. She grew up in Ottawa, dividing her time between the city and the surrounding Quebec landscape. She studied Fine Art at York University and graduated with Honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design, winning the David L Stevenson Scholarship and shortlisted for the Governor General Academic Medal.
Early in her career she began working with appropriated images, drawn to their immediacy and narrative power. Her work explores themes of memory and the natural world through the mediums of drawing, painting and collage.
She has created public art pieces in Ottawa, Gatineau and Vancouver. Her work has been featured on book, magazine and album covers. She has exhibited across Canada, the US and Europe and has been acquired by art collections in Ottawa, Vancouver and Amsterdam.
