Fuschia, Original Artwork by Billie Justice Thomson, Acrylic medium behind plexiglass with timber frame, 600 x 600mm, 2018
Original painting by Adelaide based artist Billie Justice Thomson, boldly rendered on the reverse side of Perspex.
In Billies’ paintings, individual objects are depicted in dramatically oversized scale. Combined, a potent series of work emerges with an unmistakably offbeat rhythm, and the power to enchant and surprise in a manner that belies the everyday subject matter. For Thomson, it�s about encouraging the viewer to �take stock of the effort, thought and beauty that surrounds us, that has been cared about, and crafted into existence� its about celebrating the small things.�
Since completing her painting studies in 2008 at the University of South Australia, Thomson has built up a cult following for her nostalgic style, exhibiting widely in Melbourne and her hometown of Adelaide. Alongside her studio practice Thomson is in demand for commission work, public murals and illustration.
