“A series of red spectral dresses suspended at the entranceway check you in like the frightening Ammit who welcomes the newly arrived to the afterlife. One symbolically bloodied dress is complete and titled Pomegranate, 2008, the other two are tattered remnants and are called Menstrual. These are the most gripping works in the show, proof of an artistic intensity. They encapsulate clearly and concisely the coexistence of constructive and destructive forces, that axis of on which Thompson’s work, current, past and present is made.” Tom Hardy, Border Crossings Magazine
