In Mickalene Thomas’s latest exhibition “je t’adore” at Yancey Richardson, the multidisciplinary artist presents 13 large-scale mixed media photo collages inspired by her research into the imagery of Black female erotica.
Debuting these new works, Thomas investigates the notion of desire, memory, sexuality, and transformation through images of everyday, familiar Black women positioned and posed as alluring beauties.
Throughout her career, Thomas has combined abstraction and figuration, and pushed the conventions of painting, photography, collage, and printmaking beyond their traditional limits, often incorporating unconventional materials in her work.
