Amy Thompson is an Ottawa based visual artist. Early in her career she began working with appropriated images, drawn to their immediacy and narrative power. Thompson's work has been described as introspective and is often imbued with a phantasmagorical quality. Her subjects exist both within and without our reality, straddling and exploring the places in between. She currently divides her time between Amsterdam and Ottawa. Amy gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the City of Ottawa and the Canada Council for this work.
