'He reads books that are beyond his grasp'

Just ran across this bio by Buffalo artist Tom Hughes, whose exhibition at Buffalo Arts Studio is opening on Saturday. It made me laugh:

Tom Hughes was born in Buffalo in 1972, raised in Niagara Falls, and educated at the University at Buffalo, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Married to the best wife of all time, Tom has two startlingly astute children. His family lovingly tolerates him. He reads books that are beyond his grasp. His Dad is a poet.

Sometime around 2001, he was consumed by a great big metaphor.
