"...In The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property, Lewis Hyde ruminates on his local drugstore's ever-rotating display of dime-a-dozen romance novels, asking: "Why do we suspect that Silhouette Romances will not be enduring works of art?" He answers that romance novels are bought and sold in the market economy, and art, in contrast, belongs to the gift economy. If this seems Pollyanna-ish (because, aren't works of art bought and sold all the time? Sure.), Hyde's thesis is evident in the art of Terri Thomas..."
"...A painting from artist Terri Thomas' most recent series, exploring social perception and artistic processBack to interview...."
"...Terri Thomas' solo exhibition "Pillow Book as Inheritance" is challenging for many viewers, punter and scenester alike, though perhaps for different reasons. That inspired me to speak with the artist about the show..."
"...From Co-Lab, the tour fought the waves of aggravated drivers to find (invent) a parking space at Canopy, the heart of EAST itself. After regrouping in the studio of sensationalist artist Terri Thomas, whose space they filled to the brim, Pesanti led a brief Q&A with Thomas, in which she explained the conceptual foundations of her sexually charged paintings, sculpture, and video, and how her professional history in the fashion industry and her life as an identical twin anchors her work to ideas of perfection and duality..."
"...Never mind waterboarding, friend: Try dealing with methods employed by the Inquisition, with the instrument known as the Spanish Spider (aka Breast Ripper). Terri Thomas has provided one, although it's archly rendered in Swarovski crystals and beads over a soft fabric form..."
"...MD: Oh, yes! Artists positioning themselves against the world, such as Terri Thomas' outrageous paintings of herself nude with a gigantic glittered peacock or Dawn Okoro painting herself into billboard-sized postcards...."
"...Art by Terri Thomas, showing at the POP Austin international art fair (340), held at Fair Market, 1100 E. Fifth..."
"...For four years now, the show has brought together dozens of internationally recognized visual artists, along with a handful of select locals, for a four-day exhibition at the Fair Market event space on East Fifth. Among the featured artists this year will be Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, JonOne, Ysabel LeMay, Kenton Parker, Denise Prince, Johnny Romeo, Bob Schneider, Terri Thomas, and Alyssa Taylor Wendt...."
"...And where else would we find a flower-market gallery stocked with botanical wonders from the likes of Kate Breakey, Jules Buck Jones, Jennifer Chenoweth, Virginia Fleck, Terri Thomas, Rino Pizzi, Denise Prince, Michael Anthony Garcia, Yuliya Lanina, and more of this city’s finest artists? And everybody and their Woojums dressed up in a “subversive floral” style and snapping themselves in a Man Ray photo-booth from Justine’s Brasserie?..."
"...GF: We love the work of Richard Patterson, who is British but has lived in Dallas for a long time. Austin-based artist Terri Thomas is also someone whose work is in our collection..."
"...For those who have never been, finding Big Medium’s galleries at Canopy is only a small challenge, and well worth the effort. One warning: Terri Thomas’ "Pillow Book as Inheritance" show next door is, well, adult-oriented material, a critique of the superficial depiction of sensuality in modern times..."
"...Some, like Jaelah Kuehmichel (Canopy), sell prints, drawings, and small paintings at prices under three figures; instead of selling one big painting, she sells 20 little ones. Others pull out all the stops, mounting mini-retrospectives, like Terri Thomas (Canopy) with her something-for-everyone salmagundi of Swarovski-studded kitty cats (she calls them "pussies"), naked clown bondage paintings, and fetishistic door/objects..."
"...There's a marvelous show there right now U-Genics through Saturday, Nov. 11 artist Terri Thomas (www.territhomasart.com) has taken her fashion-industry background and mirrored it through her art, which is a caustic yet beautiful comment on consumer imagery, societal stereotypes, cultural fascinations, and art history itself..."

"...His voice, narrative storytelling, and me-against-the-world swag earned comparisons to Tupac, making an attempt on his life last year all the more chilling. 2014 also saw the Baby Face Killa team up with California beat chemist Madlib, a surprise move that elevated Gibbs' game. – Thomas Fawcett Wednesday Sleepers..."

"...cover ("End of the World"), and an original track that won't be on the album, which is due in early 2002 Daniel Johnston is back from a brief West Coast jaunt, and a travelling companion tells me the singer spent quite a bit of quality beach time with fan Matt Groening at the Simpsons creator's Malibu beach house. More surprisingly, the Gammon Records people have sent copies of Johnston's "new" Rejected Unknown album to the Chron office, proving that they really exist! Not only that, they feature more artwork than Brian Beattie's "private" Austin edition from 1999! Since I mentioned Rob Thomas from Matchbox Twenty in the column last week, the formerly Austin-based Rob Thomas e-mailed me this week to brag that he managed to make The New York Post with his latest bash..."
"...This Austin quintet has certainly enjoyed its fair share of notoriety since releasing its bellwether folk-punk album, Black Sheep Boy (Jagjaguwar), in the spring of 2004. Since then, the group has lost bassist Zach Thomas but has kept grazing, spending the summer in Europe and planning an Australian tour for later this month..."
