Nox Contemporary Presents Informal Structure by Roland Thompson

Presented by Nox Contemporary Art Gallery at Nox Contemporary Art Gallery

On Friday December 7th 2018, Nox Contemporary will be presenting the exhibit Informal Structure by Roland Thompson. There will be a public reception that evening, during the Salt Lake City Gallery Stroll, from 6-9 p.m.

Informal Structure is a project that explores a contrasting compositional style to Roland’s previous geometrically based work. The language of Abstract Expressionism is used to visualize and express dynamic interactions. The players in the exchange are open to interpretation; but for Roland, they represent natural environments and the groups of inhabitants that might occupy them.

Roland Thompson was born in Utah, where he continues to live and work. He received a BFA from Brigham Young University in 1998 and an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2001. While at VCU he was mentored by the artists Shirley Kaneda and James Siena.

Thompson has been featured in notable group exhibitions, including Random Order, White Columns, New York (2003); Reductive, Mahan Gallery, Ohio (2006); Post-Geometric, ParisCONCRET, Paris (2012); Friendly Takeover- Artists Show Their Collection(Katharina Grosse), Marta Herford, Germany (2014); and a solo exhibit titled The True Organization of Things at Martos Gallery, California (2016).

His work experience includes adjunct teaching at Virginia Union University 2002-2003, Brigham Young University 2003-Current, and Utah Valley University 2012-Current.

Informal Structure will be open to the public by appointment through Friday, February 1, 2019. There will be a second reception on Friday January 18, 6-9pm. For more information and to make an appointment please contact john@johnsproul.com.
