Jet Blue #11 | Left Behind, 2021

Jet Blue #11 and Left Behind (both 2021) are composed of diverse materials including hand-cut inkjet prints, pigment-printed silk fragments, and hand-applied acrylic pochoir, resulting in two editions of 10 signed and numbered collage prints. 

 

Thomas’ artwork draws on autobiographical material, socio-political discourse, and American art influences, as well as 19th century French painting and established figures from the international 20th century canon. Her awareness of the complex cultural landscape of the 1970s in which she was raised—the dreams of modernism and radical calls for racial equality looming large in the collective consciousness—deeply influenced her iconic visual vocabulary. Thomas’ decades-long exploration of the Black female figure celebrates the power, beauty, and strength of her subjects with an emphasis on individuality, honoring their agency and ownership of their own bodies and identities.
