Vanessa R Thompsonís installations and photography recall a time of brightly colored heroes and fuzzy saviors who, with sometimes nothing more than a catch phrase or a smile, helped us through our day, brightening our imaginations with 30-minute Technicolor smiles. Using toys both iconic and forgotten, she hints at sinister narratives with a fever-dream style that guide the viewer through the dark side of Toy Land.

Vanessa R Thompson received her MFA at the Art Institute of Boston. She has exhibited her work throughout New England; most recently at Galatea Fine arts in Bostonís South End and at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA.
