Mickalene Thomas Pocket Mirror


As a distinguished and prolific visual artist, filmmaker, and curator, it comes as no surprise that past AAM exhibiting artist Mickalene Thomas has also collaborated with Australia’s Third Drawer Down on launching a new range of personal and home accessories featuring some of her most striking artworks. Available now at the AAM Shop is Thomas’s newly designed, double-sided, brushed-bronze purse mirror. The piece features works Din Facing Forward and Qusuquzah Standing Sideways, images that help illuminate the artist’s nuanced contemporary approach to notions of femininity, portraiture, and the female as “muse,” as well as mirror the artist’s fondness for embellishment via both their texture and design.
