Sculptor Kenneth Thompson’s works appear in public spaces around the country, from Topeka, Kansas to Port St. Lucie, Florida. Thompson studied to be a painter at Siena Heights College as an undergraduate, but discovered sculpture during an elective course and has devoted himself to the medium since then. Thompson’s sculptures concentrate on fundamental issues of form and the negative space that defines it, as well as the technique employed to create it. A 1998 graduate of the University of Toledo with a master of liberal studies in sculpture, Thompson most recently completed public sculpture commissions for Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and Bonita Springs Arts Center in Bonita Springs, Florida. He works from his studio—a former car dealership space—in Blissfield, Michigan.
