Large-scale portraits by Siolo Thompson

In her latest body of work, multi-media artist Siolo Thompson takes on the anxiety of our uncertain political, economic and environmental future and the impact our mistakes and the mistakes of those before us will have on the next generation.

This collection of paintings features several large scale portraits that depict children on the cusp of adulthood posed as kings or queens and they ask us to consider the flawed kingdom that these young people stand to inherit. Through the lens of these paintings Ms. Thompson, examines the fact that we live in a time when our country teeters on the edge of economic disaster, warmongering politicians preach a gospel of intolerance and hate and our planet is poisoned and getting worse. There is no calm certainty in the future of these little kings, their future is as delicate and transient as their own youthful beauty.
