Mark Thompson Statement: My primary drive as an artist is to try to make sense of my place in the world. Through the caprices and inconsistencies of memory, I hope to access a kind of collective memory of place. I do not seek to illustrate a particular place in point of fact, but rather develop and ultimately ‘make‘ a version of the world seen through the isolated lens of personal experience. The paintings are works of memory. This acts as a filter through which to retain only that which becomes important. The inevitable mix of my own history and experience fills in the gaps. The final image is therefore a remnant, the world distilled.

ABOUT THE GALLERY: The G. Gibson Gallery opened to the public in August, 1991. In the fall of 2019 we closed our retail gallery and re-opened as G. Gibson Projects, a "by appointment" viewing space located in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. Owner Gail Gibson has a background in art history, painting, and photography, and worked as director of the Weston Gallery in CA from 1987-1991.
In this new phase, we continue to represent and promote both contemporary artists + secondary market works as we connect with private collectors, corporations, and institutions. We are available to discuss your collecting goals – whether you are considering your first purchase of original art, adding to an established collection, or seeking to downsize through secondary market consignments.
Additionally, G. Gibson Projects curates and showcases physical and online exhibits through partnerships with local arts organizations and alternative spaces. Please join our mailing list and/or follow us on social media to receive regular updates.
G. Gibson Projects is normally open by appointment, however this year we are primarily working via online through email, Instagram and by phone 206-587-4033. We are able to ship artwork purchases – nationally and internationally. We also make local deliveries to client’s homes in the Seattle area, taking care to do this in a responsible manner. The viewing room will reopen later this year. August 1, 2021 marked our 30th year in business.
