Alma Thomas

Alma Thomas is a color field artist that was influenced by mosaics. This untitled piece was made in 1978, the year she died. There is a great biography and collection of her work at this blog. I ran across her work when I was checking out Barack Obama's art collection for the White House. I love the shapes and how this work seems to fall appart as your eye moves left to right.
