Mickalene Thomas makes paintings, collages, photography, video, and installations that draw on art history and popular culture to create a contemporary vision of female sexuality, beauty, and power. Blurring the distinction between object and subject, concrete and abstract, real and imaginary, Thomas constructs complex portraits, landscapes, and interiors in order to examine how identity, gender, and sense of self are informed. Her detailed surfaces and propensity for pattern work to explore the greater implications of being a woman and what it means to be beautiful within the lens of an ever-changing and materialistic culture.
