I want to thank @wasted_films for prodding me. I've been unusually quiet because of a transition between studio spaces. Here's the first of some 5x7 chemigrams I made using coffee grounds. More to come. #caffenol #chemigram #andrewkthompson @klotzgallery @gallery1of1

You know what it is, black and yellow.

Thank you Jorgre at @cacttus_lb for including me in the group exhibition at @basement_projects.

Undisputed! #barryhorowitz #vintage1995

Hunter's first win!

The very best thing about BMX is sharing it with Hunter. #bmxlife #passiton #racebmx

I won again! While I am stoked, a dilapidated trophy is hardly the best part. The best part is making new friends, seeing old friends and riding. Big thank you to @pbattikha, @soto_family_bmx, @morganjr.douglas, @vikingbmx, Chris Torrence, Bo Usher, Steven Dolphin Jr., M. Michael Smith and Chrissy Piper. #bmxlife #2wheelsdown #racebmx

Hello Friends,

I am excited to share two upcoming events this month.

Starting this Monday, August 14th, my two-person exhibit Grey is the Color of Theory will be open to the public in the Clara and Allen Gresham Art Gallery at San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC). In the exhibit Sapira Cheuk and I will compare and contrast two dynamically different art practices that share visual similarities. Sapira using Chinese brush painting to focus on issues of the body and women’s sexuality while I use photographic materials to illustrate the damage the photography industry (specifically Kodak) has had on the environment. The Clara and Allen Gresham Art Gallery is located at 701 S Mt. Vernon Ave. San Bernardino, CA 92410 and is free the public. Open hours Mon - Fri 10 am - 2:30 pm, please check the SBVC art gallery website for more information: http://www.valleycollege.edu/about-SBVC/facilities/art-gallery.php.

The reception will be held on August 23rd, 2017 from 5 pm to 7 pm.

In conjunction with this exhibit, tune into the KVC_aRts program on 91.9 KVCR this Wednesday, August 16 at 7:00 pm to hear me speak about the show. If you miss the radio broadcast you can listen here http://kvcrnews.org/arts - stream/0.

Now, for the sonically adventurous, I will be accompanying the Montreal trumpet player Philippe Battikha on Saturday, August 26th at The Press in Claremont at 129 Harvard Ave, Claremont, California 91711. I’m very excited about this show because it is a rare Southern California appearance by the Canadian Jazz musician and it will the first time that we’ve played together outside of New York. Also on the bill is BLUSH COFFIN and pop minimalist from Los Angeles DUDERELLA. The show was organized and is presented by Deathwave Records.

Thank you for all your support.

Best regards,

Andrew

Genesee is in full effect! Big thank you'd to Rusty Patton and @bige3742 for fabricating it. So rad! #cameralessphotography #chemigram #blackandwhitephoto @rastalomight

Big thanks to Rusty and Eric for making this idea into a reality. @rastalomight @bige3742

It's official. Concussion. Take these medications and rest for the WEEK!

I'm extra frustrated today. I had a crash on Sunday that has left me with nasty headaches and vomiting. Don't worry, I'm resting and recovering but I'm also two weeks away from installing my next exhibition and I have a lot to get done before then. 😫 in the meantime, here's another piece of that scroll. #thepencilofnature #cameralessphotography #abstract #chemigram

Hunter is an art handler now! #CB1 #childlabor #beyondtheblue

Before leaving for the races I left a near 12 foot chemigram scroll to dry. Like the Johnny Cash song, I can only share it,

This is the video of Christopher and my race. It's tough to see from this angle but Chris took a crazy line in the second turn to pass everybody.

Chris and I haven't raced each other since we were kids, yesterday we got first and second. #bmxlife

Yabba. Dabba.

Mother's growing collection of my my publications.

My mother claims not to be a musician but then leads the church bell choir to some avant-garde arrangements. I'm proud of you mom. #happyfathersday

Dear social media friends. I am working on a new project that will require water from the  Genesee river in  Rochester, NY. Does anyone know someone who can bottle some water and mail it to me in California by August 4th? This is a paying gig. Please DM me. Thank you in advance. #cameralessphotography #help #rochesterny #rochester #genesee #geneseeriver #geneseerivertrail #kodak

Hello Friends,

I hope you can join me this Saturday, May 13th for my latest solo exhibition. 
Andrew K. Thompson’s first solo exhibition at C.A.C.t.T.U.S. Long Beach (326 Elm Ave. Long Beach, CA 90802) draws inspiration from Surrealist automatism, Aleatoric music and photographic elements to create an open-ended interaction between light, sound and audience. The result will be an Exquisite Corpse of sound that will be in a constant state of presence. 
In the storefront windows of C.A.C.t.T.U.S. are two sound sculptures that translate ambient light into sound. Each sculpture is actively reading and transmitting sound twenty-four hours a day for the entire length of the exhibition. The chance sound composition will be determined by the amount and quality of light at any given time. A third sound sculpture placed in the exhibition area may be triggered by audience interaction. 
Included in this exhibition is a selection of Thompson’s mesmerizing color chemigrams. Chemigrams are as close to Surrealist automatic drawing as a photographer can get by applying photographic chemistry onto to an exposed sheet of photo paper. Thompson veers in a different direction by removing layers of photographic emulsion with chemicals and marking devices like a sponge or a wire brush. 
In Automatic Midnight, Thompson presents possibilities without answers or expectations. The audience will be invited to be a part of the creation of chance sound compositions that will lead into unexpected territory while viewing color photographs also made by chance.  #analogphotography #andrewkthompson #abstract #chemigram

Save the date. Saturday, May 13th in Long Beach 
Automatic Midnight ​Andrew K. Thompson’s first solo exhibition at C.A.C.t.T.U.S. Long Beach titled Automatic Midnight draws inspiration from Surrealist automatism, Aleatoric music, and photographic elements to create an open-ended interaction between light, sound, and audience. The result will culminate in a collaborative Exquisite Corpse of sound that will remain present throughout the duration of the exhibition.
​In the storefront windows and exhibition area of C.A.C.t.T.U.S. there will be sculptures that translate ambient light into sound. Each sculpture will be actively reading and transmitting sound twenty-four hours a day for the entire length of the exhibition. The chance sound composition will be determined by the amount and quality of light at any given time.
​Also included in this exhibition will be a selection of Thompson’s dynamic color chemigrams. Chemigrams are as close to Surrealist automatic drawing as a photographer can get by applying photographic chemistry onto to an exposed sheet of photo paper. Thompson veers in a different direction by removing layers of photographic emulsion with chemicals and marking devices such as a sponge or a wire brush.
Through the incorporation of unknown elements and chance occurrences, Automatic Midnight seeks to underline the possibility and potential within compositions that lead to unexpected territory. #andrewkthompson #analogphotography #abstract
