Tom Schmelzer: More Meat on the Bone


The work of Tom Schmelzer is unequivocally conceptual, but the actual concept is often left up for debate. His previous work has dealt explicitly with American culture, including their Commander in Chief, but his upcoming solo exhibition, "More Meat on the Bone," subsists on veiled references. Take the installation "Caught in the Line" (pictured), which incorporates three Australian parrots, three bird cages, tank targets and an air gun with ammunition. Presumably, one must see to understand. (Click image for detail.)
