Muse: Mickalene Thomas Photographs


Mickalene Thomas' photographic work functions as a personal act of deconstruction and reappropriation, both of images she has created herself and images she has singled out as influential. With each series, she grapples with and asserts new definitions of beauty and inspiration. This collection of portraits and staged scenes reflects a very personal community of inspiration as well, a collection of muses that includes Thomas herself, her mother and her friends and lovers, emphasizing the communal and social aspects of art-making and creativity that pervade her work.
