Tom Thayer
Multitasking painter/performer/sculptor/puppeteer Tom Thayer has most recently been a part of the Whitney’s 2012 Biennial, where his animated videos, assemblage paintings, outmoded technologies, and handmade puppets are featured. Artnet praised Thayer’s contribution to the Biennial, calling him “a modern mythographer by way of William Kentridge and Balinese shadow-plays.” Thayer will also be performing on May 20 and 27. The artist also had a strong showing at this year’s Armory week where his work sold well.
