Gate Valve features a strong contrast between graffiti-like shapes on a concrete, industrial background and precise triangular shapes that "frame' them. Troy loves these chance encounters in both art and in the mundane - like ripped up posters at subway stations that look like a De Kooning. “The subway did the best painting today!”

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.
