Perhaps one of the more geometric paintings of Troy's, Interior (6) puts Troy's signature hot pink on a contrasting dark green background. That amplifies the play between positive and negative space between the thin strips and the wide, as well as between found shapes and representation - did you see birds or strips of tape first?
Works in TX
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.
