Corrie Thomson’s practice revolves around the suggestive nature of the sculptural object. Corrie’s work is heavily informed by architecture, furniture, and the design and engineering of everyday objects. The artist is intrigued by the patterns and forms that emerge from refining and altering the processes associated with each direction of research. Through the manipulation of scale and a focus on positioning, Corrie creates peculiar sculptural scenarios which question where the overlap lies between the model and the sculpture and where oblique narratives manifest as a result.
Corrie Thomson is an artist living and working in Glasgow, working primarily with sculpture and installation.
