About The Artwork

Something like 83% of communication between people is non-verbal. We read each other's faces, take cues from gestures and body language. Like a lot of people, I really struggled with masks during the pandemic. I couldn't hear people's words for the lack of a face and I felt my own face going blank in response. I remember panicking when I met people I knew because I didn't know how to communicate anymore. I lost whatever capacity I had for small talk and everything else seemed too big to tackle when we had these self-imposed barriers between us. I found it dehumanising and isolating. That's what this painting is about.

LG Thomson was born in Glasgow and grew up in Cumbernauld, the most ambitious and experimental of Scotland’s post-war New Towns, infamous for its brutalist architecture. After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 1985, LG worked as an illustrator and graphic designer specialising in poster campaigns for issues as varied as HIV and AIDS awareness, football hooliganism, and knife crime. Her writing career began when she won a national creative writing competition and was short-listed for the Dundee Book Prize. She now lives in Ullapool, on the Northwest coast of the Scottish Highlands, where she writes, paints, and runs creative writing workshops. She has published seven novels including noir thrillers Boyle's Law and Boiling Point and her writing has appeared in a wide range of anthologies and literary publications, including All Mod Icon, Wyldblood Magazine, Epoch Press, and Art North. Her latest book, Modernist Dreams Brutalist Nightmares, is a narrative memoir about being part of the first generation to grow up in Cumbernauld. Published by Outcast Press 2022. LG is interested in exploring the ways in which life leaves its marks upon us, how the past echoes around us, and the ways in which we carry it within us. She is excited by figures at the edges, crossing boundaries, disappearing into the unknown. The push-pull tension of the struggle from dark to light. The exploration of the internal conflict. The absurdity, joy and pain of existence.
