During my visit, the loft was chock full of wall art as well, either commissioned or donated for the show. This one, a cement, dirt, and mixed media piece, is by Allison Miller, an ACME Gallery artist who went to school with Thomas. “The work I’ve seen by her is almost always on panel, so I think this is an experiment for her, working on paper. The metal is coins that she smashed on a train track. She puts coins in different configurations on the tracks and experiments with what happens, which is probably totally illegal. But I think the color and the composition are really beautiful.”
