Tompkins paints on a diverse variety of objects and materials. Her work has been described as an ‘intimate, diaristic… investigation into the language of colour and the tradition of the ready-made’. These works on paper follow her exhibition ‘Stick crystals to paintings’ at Bonner Kunstverein which made reference to the counterculture of the 1960s and its influence on the tech industry today.
