Thomas’s work celebrates female beauty and power. Permeated by the artist’s nostalgia for the 1970’s the women depicted in her paintings recall the uncomplicated self assuredness of a gone-by era, and yet radiate a contemporary freshness and straightforward grandeur. In this body of work, titled "Brawlin Spitfire Wrestler's , Thomas depicts female wrestlers clad in animal print leotards and jeweled jerseys. Intertwined in striking poses of physical engagement, these wrestlers shift between aggression and affection, power and submission; they explode the picture frame into a shimmering confusion of pattern, fabric and bodies.
