Introduction by Paul C. Ha. Text by Simon Baier, Yve-Alain Bois, Ann Lauterbach. Interview by Joao Ribas.
Cheyney Thompson has made the technology, production, and distribution of painting the subject of his work. He employs rational structures, technological processes, and generative devices as part of thinking through problems that organise themselves around the terms of painting.
Thompson’s Chronochromes (2009-2011) are composed using the colour system devised by Albert H. Munsell in the early 1900s. He grafts this system on to a calendar: each day is assigned a complementary hue pair, with every hour changing the value, and every month changing the saturation, of each brushstroke.
Thompson depicts motifs drawn from a scan of the underlying canvas, merging digital reproduction with the materiality of painting. His use of a typology of canvas formats continues his engagement with the history of painting, from still life to the chromatic variation on a single motif.

Roe Ethridge, Cheyney Thompson
Lyn Valley 6
Edited by Roger Bywater & Reid Shier
Designed by Roe Ethridge & Cheyney Thompson
Lynn Valley 6 is collaborative bookwork by New York artists Roe Ethridge and Cheyney Thompson. Ethridge is a photographer known for his clear depictive style and eclectic subject matter, while Thompson’s most recent works are abstract and semi-representational paintings on canvas. Together, they have created a book that combines two highly diverse practices into a unique dialogue.
Originally published in conjunction with a two-person exhibition at Art Basel Miami in 2009, Lynn Valley 6 includes selected documentary details of Thompson’s paintings together with outtakes from Ethridge’s commercial magazine work. Their juxtapositions, which at first appear haphazard, coalesce into an increasingly complex rumination on the creative process. Along with glimpses of both artists’ studios, the book also includes notebook sketches, collages, fabric samples and color charts. Utilizing a collagist approach, Lynn Valley 6 presents each artist’s work in a way never seen before.
