This event has ended.

The ten paintings in the exhibition reflect a return to the independence and privacy of the artist’s studio, after a series of large-scale environmental wall-painting installations. These projects gave Thomasos the opportunity to explore the challenges of institutional spaces and public themes. Scratch, painted in black and grey on a hundred foot wall in 2001, was an urgently personal graffiti coded with historical reference and was followed by Pigeoned, a tightly organized work created for an exhibition curated by David Hammons in Vienna. Her most monumental installation project to date is called Tracking and took place in two parts. Thirty Years in Canada, Thirty Years in Canada and Bombings, Wars and Genocide: A Six Months Journey from New York to China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. In 2005 she was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario to create Hybrid Nations, a 12 x 45’ wall painting that remained on view until 2008.
