Intergenerational relationships and collective memory are central to this body of abstract paintings. Using bright, fluid colors and exploring Alma Thomas’s signature paint stripe as a universal mark, this work explores the ancestry of art in Washington, D.C. and the relationships between the artist and her foremothers. The bright colors and sculptural paint build a visual tapestry symbolizing the bonds between generations.
