I had a blast dropping off the Daley cut-out to Cleo Thomas at it’s new home in Anniston, AL last week. Honored to be part of such a great collection.

So, if art is supposed to make you feel… something, then Ray Noland is apparently a pretty good artist! If he only worked with cats…………….! —Thom

Objectification

Some people have a problem with the wood cut-out I did for the Chicago Reader Biker Village at Pitchfork. Going as far as to call me sexist. I’d like to point out the naked Anthony Wiener cut-out — which is arguable more sexualized.

Some of the comments…

"Either of our interpretations could be valid, but the work itself is ambiguous enough that I think it’s safe to assume that most interpretations will say more about the person looking at it than the person who created it. It’s pretty dangerous then, to accuse anyone who doesn’t share your interpretation of being sexist." —Bradley G
