Thompson, Milly, 2019, Show, Exhibition or Event, Milly Thompson

Abstract or Description:

Freehouse presents a set of paintings by Milly Thompson that look at the under represented subject of female sexuality in what is often termed ‘middle age’. Following on from the exhibition Cougar (2016), these small scale paintings are both personal and political, provocative, clever and joyful. The show follows a day in the life of a central character on holiday, sunbathing, drinking, eating and escaping her day to day existence. Thompson identifies with the character (the invite image is Thompson herself) and sees in her the female artist, teacher and sexual being in a world that focuses women young or safely de-sexualised by age. Thompson’s painting are a celebration, but one with sharp edge and a confident voice.
