Thomas J Price

Thomas J Price works across disciplines of sculpture, film, and photography. Conceptually focused, Price engages with issues of power, representation, interpretation, and perception in society and in art. Price’s large-scale sculptures depict imagined subjects, whose features are an amalgamation of sources. Observed individuals and stereotypes represented in the media are mixed with references to ancient, classical, and neoclassical sculptures. These works serve as psychological portraits of the viewer by revealing socially learned attitudes and understandings as they project identities on to the depicted characters. Using methods of presentation, material, scale, and detail Price aims to challenge viewers’ expectations and assumptions.
