For this Contemporary counterpoint, Thomas has created three new large-scale collages, one monumental painting and an immersive site-specific installation featuring her 2016 video/sculpture Me As Muse. These works represent the breadth of the visual language the artist has developed over the past twenty years while also revisiting the time she spent as an artist-in-residence at Claude Monet’s home in Giverny, France in 2011.

The exhibition is now over.
