Ann Thomson

Ann Thomson is a Brisbane-born, Sydney-based painter and sculptor known for her vibrant, expressive compositions and inventive use of unconventional materials including tar paper. Since graduating from the National Art School in 1962 she has held countless solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas. Thomson has won a number of prizes, including the 1998 Wynne Prize, 2005 Kedumba Drawing Prize and the 2002 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, and 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.
