Warm colors in earthy tones are where their heart is, but neons and bold shapes put their head somewhere else.
A video and book artist-turned-painter, Troy still hasn't lost the wonder of new materials like toys, molding paste, and most recently flower-patterned plastic bags. Rather than playing fixed roles in a prefabricated play, his works together explore a constellation of loosely related sentiments like serious absurdity, the ineffable scale of cosmic time, surveyor marks, and rat traps around New York. These moments when existential issues suddenly intrude into everyday life or vice versa are most pronounced in the contrast between the digital hot pink he frequents and the scratched, worn out textures like peeled subway ads that accompany it.
Kati works from her Chelsea studio, serene and slightly aloof like her own paintings. It is easy to classify her as geometric abstraction, but she uses this style to a very specific end: to make “invisible things” visible. The subject of Kati’s work is abstraction itself and it is not a representation of anything that exists in the visible world. This gives the viewers the freedom to forget about preconceptions or contexts, and invites them to develop an independent, individual interpretation of the works. Aside from painting, she also works with digital mediums to make installations and videos.
Mary’s paintings raise a series of open-ended questions - they don’t demand an answer, but they do ask for your consideration. If you feel compelled to run your finger along the winding, maze-like line of one of Mary’s paintings, don’t worry - so do we (though we don’t recommend it - oily hands and oily paints don’t mix well.) Her take on abstraction is surprisingly tactile, with unique titles which inspire sensations, rather than literal representations.
Expressive and vulnerable, Molly’s paintings read like an unpredictably eloquent dream journal. A cloudy haze of bright colors are expertly synthesized to evoke memories of a time and place which feel familiar, though ultimately unknown. As a skilled colorist, Molly creates abstract moments of nostalgia and sentimentality. Molly’s pieces are made up of experiences, both lived and imagined. She is able to capture small moments and transfer them onto canvas.
