Gwenn Thomas’ series Rosette is a balancing act of the delicate and rough hewn and the precisely patterned and organically derived. Marks which remind of cuts in a stela form a rough circle including, at once, patternings of uneven concentric circles and askew crosses.
Thomas’ work is represented in major collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Harvard Art Museums/Fogg Museum; Princeton University Library, Graphic Arts Collection; Chase Manhattan Bank; Progressive Art Collection; Saatchi Collection, London; Citigroup, New York; C.A.M. Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, Portugal; and São Schlumberger, Paris. A survey of Thomas’ work was published by Charta (Milan, Italy) in 2013.
