“Technology is great if it is working. If it isn’t, you are just fucked.”

-Betty Tompkins

On: Technology



American artist Betty Tompkins’ paintings are based on the tension of intimacy and representation of sexuality, rendering explicit scenes in monochromatic tones. Having dealt with censorship throughout her 50-year career, Tompkins, unbothered, has found an unlikely new home for her work on Instagram. Her work has been shown in numerous museums and galleries including The Centre Pompidou, the Lyon Biennale, and the Flag Art Foundation.
