Thomason unleashes female warriors to right millennia of subjugation and misogyny. She disrupts the passive image of muses by recreating Gauguin’s Tahitian young women as powerful drip-rendered ‘witches’. In her dramatic, fluid abstract paintings she references the climate crisis and colonialism. Her career in fashion helped fuel her dynamic, vibrant colour palette and unique perspective.
