Label TextMickalene Thomas is best known for her large scale paintings covered in various textures and finishes. Her work celebrates the AfricanAmerican female, and is influenced by pop culture and fashion, as well as complex art historical references ranging from Edouard Manet and Gustave Courbet to Andy Warhol and Romare Bearden. This technically intricate print parallels her paintings through its imagery, use of collaged elements of various textures, and utilization of multiple printmaking media.
