    In 1991, Positive Art's third annual summer exhibition at Nexus Gallery, entitled "Finding Our Own Healing," included a community panel discussion about art and AIDS. Responding to the question: "Is your art politically explicit, or implicitly political because you are an artist living with AIDS?" Tom was emphatic. His art was in no way political.

    His impassioned statement honored all the men who had modeled for his paintings. He said that after modeling for him, they would often spend the night, and that he would make them breakfast before they left his studio. Tom's work was a tribute to these men. He felt indebted to them for helping to make his pictures come alive.
