Lot Report


'Yes Men' is from the series "Emotions of Men". I photograph wrestling figurines in ways that change the machismo, ego and physical force these forms were created to express. I push viewers into unfamiliar territory. My photographic and conceptual process continues to evolve as I see opportunities to create unexpected narratives from the interactions of these emotionally constrained figures.

About the Artist:
Tom's photographic art projects raise issues as diverse as the treatment of Indigenous people, sex and gender, urban living, death, and gun culture. The other primary subjects of his photography encompass natural and urban places in a state of change.

Tom is a two-time winner of the Jim P. Shea Memorial Award. A list of his exhibitions and awards can be found at
