read the review by Joseph Bravo
“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
