Thomas shows colorful, lyrical works and revisits 20th century abstraction through a 21st century lens. Underlying the playful nature of Thomas’ new paintings is an investigation into broader concepts of chaos and chance. Thomas begins each painting with her own version of the surrealist technique automatism. As each painting develops, Thomas imparts a formal eye to the original marks and shapes, moving lines and forms to better serve the composition and narrative. It's playing with mapping as a construct, framing time, relationships, even identities. It's exploring how we all chart our lives.
