Denyse Thomasos: just beyondDenyse Thomasos: just beyond

Published by DelMonico Books/Art Gallery of Ontario/REMAI MODERN.
Edited with text by Renée van der Avoird, Sally Frater, Michelle Jacques. Text by Adrienne Edwards, Marsha Pearce, Denise Ryner.

This is the first ever retrospective publication on Trinidadian Canadian painter Denyse Thomasos (1964–2012). Thomasos’ often monumental canvases with overlapping gridded lines, fluid drips of paint and geometric architectural objects challenge the limits of minimalism and abstraction, while also embodying her dedication to social justice. Through pattern, scale and repetition, Thomasos conveyed the vastness of events such as the Transatlantic slave trade and mass incarceration, without exploiting the images of those affected by them. Thomasos writes: “like a carpenter, I rebuild the fragmented psychology of slave culture, revealing its fragile foundation.”
A series of essays addresses Thomasos’ dissection of art historical traditions; her interest in global architectures and physical structures of power and resistance; her focus on the history of slavery; and her commitment to exposing narratives of systemic racism.
