Ann Thomson is a Brisbane born, Sydney based painter and sculptor known for her vibrant, expressive artworks. Described by the late Edmund Capon as “one of the most interesting and intuitive artists in Australia today”, Thomson works are not intended to replicate a scene or a landscape, but rather evoke a sense of place.

“To paint a specific subject is just not my way of working. I have to be more open. It’s like opening another door that is to do with trust, it’s to do with memory, and having the knowledge that when you start painting the creative process begins. Too much thinking about it gets in the way.” - Ann Thomson (Artist Profile Magazine 2016).

Often described as abstract, Thomson rejects this label as her works are drawn from visual memories of places and things; “I might abstract something, but I don't just paint shapes.Thomson often refers to a quote from The Bulletin magazine when she was asked, “Are you an abstract or a figurative artist?” and she answered “yes”.

“My painting has always moved between representation and abstraction which I continue to explore today.” - Ann Thomson

Since graduating from the National Art School in 1962 Ann Thomson has become a force in the Australian art scene with countless solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas. Ann Thomson has won a number of prizes, including the Wynne Prize, Kedumba Drawing Prize, 2002 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize and major commissions include Australia Felix, the central sculptural installation at the 1992 World Expo in Seville.

Her work is included in many important collections such as Art Gallery of New South Wales, Newcastle Regional Art Gallery, Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, Madrid and Villa Haiss Museum, Germany.
