Betty Tompkins

“There have been several constants in the development of my ideas as a painter. Most important has been an edgy, uncomfortable type of humor. In my pieces, I present fictions and allegories that are simultaneously funny and disturbing I have often noticed that the more violent (to me) the scene, the more people have laughed. I am very interested in this"

Betty Tompkins, 1988

Born: Washington, D.C. 1945
