Who is Tom Moody?
Tom Moody is an artist and musician based in New York City. His low-tech art made with MSPaintbrush, photocopiers, and/or consumer printers has been exhibited at artMovingProjects, Derek Eller, and Spencer Brownstone galleries in New York as well as other galleries and museums in the US and Europe. His videos have been screened in the New York Underground Film Festival, the Chicago Underground Film Festival, and other venues, and he is interviewed in the film 8 BIT, which premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His blog, commenced in February 2001, was recommended in the 2005 Art in America article “Art in the Blogosphere.” A CD of his music collaborations with earcon (John Parker), titled Scratch Ambulance, is available on iTunes and at cdbaby.com.
What's with all the blogs and websites?
Moody's blog at tommoody.us is updated regularly. His blog at Digital Media Tree ended July 2007, although comments are still monitored on open threads. His "archive" website, documenting his exhibitions and past critical writing, can be found here. Moody also sporadically maintains a website and weblog devoted to the writing of the author Doris Piserchia.
Isn't he also a critic?
"Artist" or "artist and blogger" are the preferred designations, although Moody has an extensive print publishing history, with writing on art and music appearing in Artforum, Art Papers, Sculpture, New Art Examiner, Dallas Morning News, Brilliant Corners (music zine) and VERY. He is the co-author, with Barry Blinderman, of the book post-hypnotic (Illinois State University, 1999), accompanying the exhibition of the same name. Moody's catalog essays have appeared in publications of the Queens Museum, Dallas Museum of Art, Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston and numerous private galleries. One reason he started blogging was so he could occasionally write criticism, but have it seen in the context of his own ongoing creative projects.
