“Thomas’ artworks are immediate and attainable, they are rich in iconography but not so esoteric as to be obtuse. Thomas’ paintings and sculptures are indeed simultaneously appealing and appalling and mesmerize viewers who feel a little embarrassed for looking so closely at images similar to those more conventionally viewed in private. But Thomas is not embarrassed and frankly reveals herself and, in so doing, unveils things about the society in which we live and the secret life of the individual in the context of the cognitive dissonance produced by normative expectations….” – Joseph Bravo

“…There are beliefs around what feminism is that I would claim as my own, some I would reject. How absurd today, to think that women would have to definitively choose to want cock or no cock, penetration or no penetration, to be a good girl or bad, dominant or passive, empowered or a victim. And surprisingly, there are feminists out there who adhere to the idea that some of these scenarios are an “either/or” situation. I think women today should have the freedom, inventiveness and sense of play to momentarily move in and out of these, or any desires. And fortunately, we today live in a culture where that is more possible. There is no denying the strength, power and effectiveness that the feminists of the 70’s demonstrated, as they forged the way for future generations. Their poignant (if not always great) art have brought us one step closer to understanding classlessness, unprejudiced, open mindedness and social equality. If those are the goals of an evolved contemporary Feminism, it is politics I share and claim as my own.” – the artist

“U-Genics” Interview with Terri Thomas by Joe Martin Hill

categorized under Interview

Solo Exhibition

read the interview with Joe Martin Hill (founder of Vision Connect and currently working on the curatorial team assisting Robert Storr in the preparation of the Venice Biennale for 2007)

JMH: Your exhibition is conceived on multiple levels. The individual works stand alone, but there are permutations in series. And then there is an overall installation strategy of different positions relating to similar themes. In that sense, the exhibition itself might be viewed as an installation work. It’s a lot to take in! What clues can you give for finding meaning in the whole? And is this important? ….
