Thomas’s work calls on individuals to see the conditions of the present and the past, and to envision a future in which every person is recognized in full. Do others see and honor your whole self? Do you?

The bottom line of Thomas’s artwork, I Am. Amen., can be read as a poetic affirmation of existence. If you were to take a deep breath, open your heart, and momentarily suspend fear, what would the bottom line of your own I Am. Amen. say?
