In this work, Troy uses both additive and subtractive elements - he builds a vibrant hot pink background with molding paste, then scraped it away from the left bottom corner. He is very interested in cosmic time and our relationship to it, and city decay you can see in layers of ripped up posters in the subway.

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.
