Even with the glamorous gold and hot pink, there is something about Second Hour that makes you think of the end of something - a spectacular, sublime end like a red giant star engulfing us. The parts where gold and black have been scraped away exemplify Troy's emphasis on reductive process being as important as additive, and his general interest in cosmic decay.
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.
