ART: Mickalene Thomas-Triple Threat and Direct!

9 Posing Beauty Mickalene Thomas ART: Mickalene Thomas Triple Threat and Direct!
New york based artist and triple threat Mickalene Thomas is gaining a lot of attention for her portrayal of beautiful, confidant women.  Her photographs are direct, sensual and full of vibrant color, taking inspiration from blaxploitation films, Harlem and the Hudson River School art movement.  She also employs a technique of using reinstones  to accentuate her subjects’ natural appeal.  I love her sculptures of two women wrestling. The fact that they are wearing animal print make it so perfect.
