Mickalene Thomas (1971- ) is a painter and collage artist who uses rhinestones, acrylic, and enamels in her work. Her pieces reimagine the Black female nude as a subject of desire and center the lesbian gaze. She explores gender and sexuality and how pop culture influence the politics of representation. Her collages with glitter and rhinestone reconstruct ideas around beauty and sexuality and create conversations around femininity and desire. ⁠ ⁠
