      A Peeping Tom – someone who pries, who looks when it is inappropriate to do so, who is curious with a side of sleaze.  It is a phrase with negative connotations and implications of unpleasantness and preying on the vulnerable.  Is it a phrase we should use in the context of contemporary artists?  Perhaps.  Many are drawn to issues that make their viewers uncomfortable, and many look at the world in a way that the rest of us try to avoid.  But do they look because they want to,...
