"In images which range from a surreal view of the baroque arsenal of the Holy Loch to dreamlike definitions of the religious flaws within Scottish identity and a reminder that democracy on the UK mdel will not neccesarily make Eastern Europe 'free', Thomson develops a density of symbolism which resonate with the sixteenth century painters of Holland, Flanders and Germany, above all Mathias Grunewald."
